Africa | A Egungun Costume (front & back) from the Yoruba people.  The word Egungun refers to masking associated with honored male lineage ancestors. Egungun masquerades are performed throughout Yorubaland but the costune styles are extremely diverse as a result of both regional preferences and the fertile imagination of artists and patrons. Many Egungun costumes consist entirely of costly and extravagantly embellished cloth while others include carved headdresses. | © Tim Hamill

EGUNGUN ENSEMBLE  "Massive interlaces on beaded panels both front and back proclaim that the past, present and future are part of the infinite cycle of existence: birth, life, departure, return. They recall the whirling return of the past into the present, and simultaneously, the  spiraling outward departure on new life journeys into the future."
