The Yoruba people, a Southwestern Nigeria ethnic group, value balance between the present and the past. This crown is the most important symbol of royal power and authority in Yoruba culture, connecting the past and present through royal family lineage. The first king of Yoruba gave a beaded crown to each of his sons and sent them forth to establish their own kingdoms. The birds depicted on either side of the St. Frank crown signify the support of female elders. Traditionally, kings wore these crowns low, covering their face, when appearing in public to represent the king as an embodiment of the connection between past and present.
