A noble helmet is hand-carved from sese wood with pointed horns, centering a length of adjustable black cord. This necklace is created by Ghanaian artisan Robert Aidoo-Taylor, who flanks the pendant with petite wood beads and discs. He paints the pendant in colors of green and black. The necklace is named Yaa Asantewaa, after a past Ashanti queen, famous for her resistance of British colonialism.
