YORUBA BEADED CROWN 37, NIGERIA
Photographs © Tim Hamill
16.5 " high (crown) 26 " high (with veil) x 12" wide
Despite the quality of workmanship and the interesting and complex form, we believe that this crown was made to be sold.
The inside is lined with part of a light blue Yoruba ashoke textile.
The bird on the top of the crown has an extension that inserts into a hole on the top of the crown. It is removable. The crown was photographed on a simple, sectional black base as shown in the installation picture. It can be purchased for $25.
