Photographs © Tim Hamill
20" high (crown) 35 " high (with veil) x 11" 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 striped Yoruba ashoke textile. It is missing two strands from the veil. There are several area, mostly around the edges of wings, that were not beaded.
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.
