“The Crown of Womanhood” – Guinea
Crown shaped like a woman’s face, typical of the Yoruba tribe. The crown features a small mouth, narrow lips, small ears, and narrow, elongated nose. At the top of the crown are two circles, at the top of which appear two additional women’s faces, their gazes directed upward. Traditionally the crown is placed on a woman’s head for blessing and fertility.
