    What is this head piece called?

    The white cloth wrapped around the head of middle of the three horsemen in the fore-ground, is there a name for those kind of hat?

    I expect you probably have holes in your knowledge others would find equally egregious.

    I dont find it exactly outrageous ^^ its just well ...pretty commonly know what that is, sure there are many things I dont know ^^,that doesnt mean that I cant express wonderment if someone doesnt know something that for me and everyone I know is common knowledge.(I know , one could now argue that some tribesmen in the jungle in brazil surely do have a different point of view on "common knowledge" but lets not take it that far , as this wasnt the intent of my comment in the first place, because one could say that Germany and the US arent that far apart when it comes to the basic knowledge of "things" ^^ ) I would say its hard to not know such a common thing as a turban, then again that wasnt judgemental ^^ just a little startled, for me that is equal to not knowing what a car is, or a baseball-cap. Again: no judgement in this, just surprise - or to be more precise the question "How come?"

    PLUS you Mr.Elwell are quite known for your very own moments of ( mostly justified ^^) "smart-assery" ( and that was really meant like a friendly tease ^^ not as insult) so dont call me out on mine

    And Sorry Vay if this sounded amused, I didnt try to poke fun at you.

    That's ok, it's only been the last few years after 9/11 did people use the word Burqa/Burkha and often confuse them with Hijab and other garments. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Burqa

    Then again people attack Sikhs mistaking them for "Terrorist Mulsims!"

    Also Sikh is not to be confused with Seekh (kabobs) which are quite delicious.

    That's one of many examples. Often I've seen Sikhs come here at my workplace and people whisper "terrorist" and other garbage out of sheer ignorance.

    And I thought this was going to a be an anatomy question. . .

    Eh, we all have knowledge gaps.

    Music terminology-- there's a place where I'm vastly ignorant.

    Like one of my favorite tunes-- "Hotel California"-- the unplugged version of this is filled with all kinds subtle movements, passages and changes that I greatly enjoy but don't have the technical verbiage to correctly describe. . .

    In my own personal bubble of comfort and ignorance, I deem everybody who doesn't think or live exactly like me, is either wrong, or more importantly a threat. I refuse to acknowledge and respect other peoples culture and find it both disturbing and laughable that your views are not as same as mine. I categorize people mercilessly and don't believe in shades of grey. Individualless groups, opinionfed by the media. My world's a simple, blissful box where I am right and you are wrong.

    And seeing as things are easier to draw when you understand their underlying structure:

    ...of course you realize there are hundreds of turban styles, and they all wrap differently. And whoa betide you if you put the wrong style on the wrong person!

    India in particular has some wild turban styles. Look up Mughal court painting and check out the variety in the crowd scenes.

    Yes, but Google is always right, and their first few links obviously the correct way to do it. :-)

    Speaking as someone who is both Muslim (familiar with head gear) and from the subcontinent (familiar with Sikh style turbans), if we're getting into structure, keep this fact in mind: when people from particularly hot countries wrap fabric around their heads, it's to keep cool, keep their hair out of their face, etc... it's meant to be purely functional-- it's not that different from a bandana.
    The Sikh style turban-- and this is exclusive to Sikhs-- their turban is designed to bind their hair. Removing or cutting ones hair is forbidden in the Sikh faith and so Sikh men (and some women), having very long hair, keep it tied up neatly in their turbans-- so it's not just a wrap around the head, but a wrapping around a long, thick cord of hair that is then wrapped around the head. Basically, there's a structure underneath.
