DescriptionMulti-coloured twin figure cloak with predominantly solid green and blue glass beads sewn atop and covering the entire surface of a cloth vest. There are three main designs on the front that consist of a series of interlocking curved diagonal lines. Such tunics were used to dress ibeji figures and display the twin's association with the god Shango.
