Yoruba Beaded Crowns ARCHIVES, Nigeria. A beaded cone-shaped crown with a long fringe of beads that covers the wearer's face is the most important symbol of Yoruba kingship. Beaded crowns signify that the king-wearer can trace his ancestry to Odudua, the mythical founder of the sixteen original Yoruba kingdoms. (per Smithsonian National Museum of African Art) Crowns without fringe have either lost the fringe or were made to be sold to the collector trade.

These beautiful images from an exhibit at the British Museum - the Kingdom of Ife: Sculptures from West Africa.  Ife is an ancient Yoruba city in south-western Nigeria.  My concept of African art has been changed by the natural roundness and sensualness of the faces.  They are some of the earliest examples of realism in art, some sculptures dating from before the European Renaissance. Crowned Head, 12th-14th century  copper alloy
