Africa | Beaded chief's crown from the Pende people from the DR Congo | Glass beads and fiber | ca. 20th century | These hats, called Misango, are insignias of title, and nobility. The Yaka, Lunda, the Pende and a few other groups all use them. The horns are supposed to recall the horns of the buffalo, which is a chiefly male symbol of power.
