This cone-shaped crown embellished with beaded faces, geometric patterns and birds represents the future as well as, the past of the King or Queen who it was made for.  Therefore, it can only be worn by Yoruba royalty during public and state occasions. The crown is the most important object in royal Yoruba insignia. The beaded strings act as a veil and are attached at the bottom of the crown, thus covering the King’s face and shrouding him from onlookers.  Furthermore, strengthening his role as divine ruler.
