Yoruba hats are a status symbol and are used to signify a person of important political or spiritual distinction. It is a cone-shaped crown with a long strip of beads that covers the face of the person wearing it. A veil, a large face and a group of birds are symbols that commonly appear on the crown of a Yoruba King.

The crown identifies the status of its wearer and gives the King the power to interact with the spirit world to benefit his people. It is believed that whoever owns this crown will have good fortune.

It is a unique piece, with great artistic value and very decorative. Ideal for lovers of art and exclusive pieces.
