YORUBA BEADED CROWN 59, NIGERIA
Photographs © Tim Hamill
20.5" high (crown) 36" high (with veil) x 13" 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 tan Yoruba ashoke textile. There are three missing strands on the veil.
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.
If you would like a stand for this piece, please inquire.
