LEGA CAPS 2

Despite their appearance these caps were probably made to be sold.

The measurement is the height of the cap followed by the height including the chin strap.

Lega caps were used in instruction and initiation ceremonies of Bwami, the association that Lega men rise through with lifelong learning and deeds.
