Obi-Wan Kenobi's (Ewan McGregor) hair braid display from the production of George Lucas' Star Wars: The Phantom Menace.
Obi-Wan Kenobi (Ewan McGregor) is a young apprentice Jedi knight under the tutelage of Qui-Gon Jinn (Liam Neeson). Anakin Skywalker (Jake Lloyd), who will later father Luke Skywalker and become known as Darth Vader, is just a 9-year-old boy. When the Trade Federation cuts off all routes to the planet Naboo, Qui-Gon and Obi-Wan are assigned to settle the matter.
This braid and others like it were made for the production to be worn by Obi-Wan Kenobi as a Padawan to signify the rank he had reached in his Jedi apprentice training. Originally from the collection of hair stylist Sue Love, who worked on several notable productions, including the Star Wars franchise and Withnail & I, the long braid is made from brown synthetic hair and features one band of red thread and two bands of faux-gold thread. Different coloured bands would be added to these whenever a Padawan progressed in their training. It has been custom-framed next to the film's logo and a picture of Obi-Wan wielding his lightsaber.
The braid shows signs of production use, including glue remnants at the top, minor wear and loose strands of thread. Overall it remains in an excellent condition.
