"Soroka" is a ceremony headdress of a peasant woman from Biruchensk Region, Voronezh Province, Russia. Early 20th century. Originally these grew from the shaman cultures, maidens were not allowed to wear them, mothers wore them with smaller horns and the grandmothers wore the largest horns. When Christian religion came, they destroyed the shaman cultures and gave the power to the maiden, thus the wedding headdress symbolically means a loss of personal power as a female in community and city.
