Painting by G D Paulraj recently added to the Raj Brothers Facebook site depicting some fishermen sorting through their catch. The pointed hats caught my eye as I have a woven palm frond hat which I got from Puri in India in 1967.
It is a nice painting with the steely grey sky and greeny blue sea with some colour from the ladies clothes.
The hat is not identical to that worn by the men in the painting, their hats seem to have a wide rim. My hat was in the attic and the palm fronds are still remarkably supple after 43 years.
