In traditional Africa, helmets were used not only as protection, but also to show status or rank. They can be carved from wood, cast in bronze or woven and embellished with horns, symbolic forms, cloth, cowries, metal strips and beads. Our Yoruba helmets all include a masking cloth with eye holes.

This helmet has been vetted as authentic, with evidence of age and use.
