YORUBA EGUNGUN COSTUMES 1


The word Egungun refers to masking associated with honored male lineage ancestors. Egungun masquerades are performed throughout Yorubaland but the costune styles are extremely diverse as a result of both regional preferences and the fertile imagination of artists and patrons. Many Egungun costumes consist entirely of costly and extravagantly embellished cloth while others include carved headdresses.
