LEGA
Cap 5
15.5" high
$200

Despite its appearance this cap was probably made to be sold.

The measurement is the height including the raffia or 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.
