Yoruba Beaded Crown. 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.
