I came across this interesting piece:

An interesting piece

Now, I'm not sure it is a hood ornament, but I would like to know what it is. Any help would be appreciated.

It doesn't look like a fleur de lys... –  Coyote Jan 13 '12 at 2:01

I think you may have stolen King Kahuka's tribal feather-thingy... –  Peter Cassetta Jan 13 '12 at 5:22
    
@Coyote I was trying to think of something to liken it to. It kind of looks like the top half of a fleur-de-lis, if you squint your eyes. –  RedRiderX Jan 13 '12 at 12:50
    
LOL, ok. PeterDC seems to be right... It's a feather ornament, it doesn't look like the ones on medieval helmets so it might be one of the tribal ones. –  Coyote Jan 13 '12 at 16:30

It's appeared in a number of sets, most with pirate, castle, or western themes and sometimes as an extra part. It's sometimes packaged in a "Plume Wheel" (i.e. still in a circular runner with some cattle horns), and is typically used for islander minifigs:

Thanks for the identification. I now completely remember these from the Lego Racers game. –  RedRiderX Jan 13 '12 at 12:51
