This picture of this had has been taken in Mexican Restaurant.
Sombrero in English refers to a type of wide-brimmed hat in Mexico and the Philippines. It usually has a high pointed crown, an extra-wide brim (broad enough to cast a shadow over the head, neck and shoulders of the wearer, and slightly upturned at the edge), and a chin string to hold it in place. Cowboys generalized the word to mean just about any wide broad-brimmed hat.
In Mexico, peasant sombreros are usually made of straw, while wealthier people wear sombreros made of felt. They come in many designs with different colorings, woven patterns, and decorations. The Mexican sombrero has become a national and cultural symbol, and is often used in traditional Mexican celebrations, especially by communities outside Mexico.

Bonjour, chère Barbara,
Ah ! il est magnifique ce sombrero avec ses magnifiques broderies d'or.
Il méritait bien cette très jolie composition.
Très bonne journée.

I have seen these hats before, on TV shows but always from a distance, so I have never had an appreciation for the level of detail that goes into them. This capture shows that detail superbly, with amazing work having gone into creating this. A beautiful shot and a very informative note! Thank you.
All the best
