YORUBA, BEADED CROWNS, Nigeria

Traditionally, Yoruba crowns were worn by the king, or Oba, in public ceremonies. They were embellished with symbolic designs. Beads were signs of wealth and status. The veil separated the divine king from mortals.

Most of these are contemporary and were probably made for sale rather than for use by a king.
