YORUBA GELEDE HEADDRESSES 2

The Gelede masks on this page have been judged as having been made for the art market.

Gelede, a male association, uses the aesthetic power of sculpture, costume, song and dance to placate and please women, who have special spiritual power. Often with elaborate superstructures, the headdresses appear as identical pairs in the dances.
