YORUBA BEADED CROWN 62, NIGERIA
Photographs © Tim Hamill
12 " high (crown) x 6" wide
This small but old crown is constructed on stiff basketry (partially damaged) with remnants of leather, cotton and woven raffia. It exhibits four wonderful large faces and four small ones. Its small size suggests another function rather than a crown: the form is closer to that of a House of the Head shrine object.
