Description
Rare Oba's kings crown
Nigeria - Africa
3th quarter 20th century
Bush fibers, textile, beads
39 cm (without beaded wires)
Rare and special Oba's crown represents the highest level of authority vested in Yoruba rulers. Referred to as an ade, the bead-embroidered crown is the foremost attribute of the ruler. An oba's crown may also be referred to as an adenla, or great crown. Andenlas are elaborate conical headdresses, like the ade, but feature a heavily beaded veil that covers the face. Provenance: Ex "De Grave" collection, The Netehrlands. Sold without stand
