Yoruba Ceremonial Headdress


Ceremonial headdress. The Yoruba people are the largest nation in Africa with an art-producing tradition. Most of them live in southwest Nigeria, with considerable communities further west in the Republic of Benin and in Togo, in an area of forest and savannah. They are divided into approximately twenty separate subgroups, which were traditionally autonomous kingdoms. Now two-third of the Yoruba are farmers. Even if they live in the city, they keep a hut close to the fields; they grow corn, beans, cassava, yams, peanuts, coffee, and bananas. Apparently, this unusual headdress decorated with images of musicians and servants was intended to be used by a chief during some ceremonies.
