Beads were signs of wealth and status. Many Yoruba sacred and secular objects were embellished with elaborate images and symbolic designs created by small glass beads.

This skirt has not been vetted. The beadwork and hanging cowrie shells are attached to a heavy cloth belt.The skirt does not show use but the form and workmanship are characteristic of older authentic pieces.
