Need some help please

Hello all,

New to the forum and not sure exactly where to post this, so please excuse me if this is the wrong area. I am trying to figure out what this garment is called, when would it have been worn and what exactly is the meaning behind it. Any help is very much appreciated.

Welcome to powwows.com.

The way the cowrie shells are attached, the form, the technique, the motifs.... It just doesn't look Native. That piece looks African to me..

I'd make an off the cuff guess that it is from Nigeria If I recall my several decades old undergrad African Studies class, the Yoruba people have a tradition of ceremonial garments that have motifs like those. Here are a few examples:

Yoruba sashes at Hamill Gallery

Yoruba sashes at Rings and Things

Yoruba sashes on Ethnic Jewels

Various Yoruba beaded items on eBay
