.We first looked at this image during Grail Week. ( here )
Not commented upon in that post was the crown-like flourish atop the golden-framed mirror-stand. It's as if the mirror's frame also wears a hat, to echo or endorse the prospective hatted one.
This reminded bL of an old reference friend :
The Supreme Goddess as Void, with projection- space for image.
What's the connection? Not knowing, but surmising : the top section of the silhouette above is reminiscent of the sun and moon disc motif. Could this be the origin and form of the common hat? (In the way, for instance, a Christian bishop's mitre derives from a fish head.) A cosmic crown?
