Head of an Oba (King), circa 1700s, from the court of Benin. The crown, with its pattern of crisscrossed beads and junctures marked by a dot in the center, is characteristic of this period. The three raised marks above each eye are called ikharo, believed to represent scarification marks. Men would usually have three, while women and foreigners would wear four.
