YORUBA BEADED CROWN 64, NIGERIA
Photographs © Hamill Gallery
16 " high (crown) 31" high (with veil) x 9" 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 a dark indigo cotton cloth. There are a few areas with no beads, mostly hip joints, tips of tails and one middle of tail.
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.
