Africa | Royal headdress. Yoruba people. 20th century. Fiber and glass beads | Beaded items have long been associated with royalty among the Yoruba. Cone-like crowns like this one are primary symbols of a king's authority. When wearing it, a king becomes connected to royal ancestors, thereby strengthening his authority. Since it is prohibited for people to gaze directly at the king's head, a veil is included to conceal him.
