***A Great Additional Discount Is Available!!---Click on my Name Directly Above ( "Listed by...") to learn about my Multi-Sale Discount Offer in my Closet Profile*** Designed by Master Milliner, Harriet Rosebud of Harlem, New York, and expertly crafted per her exacting designs in the Philippines, this extremely rare and flawless sculpture is exquisite. Harriet speaks well of this queen; "The gorgeous Crown rests regally and elegantly atop a Resin bust of Queen Amina. She was as an honored and respected woman, capable as any King. Amina's impact on Zaria (later called Nigeria) in the 16th century was profound. As a skilled military leader; which brought her not only power, but wealth through her conquests, Amina was also a queen of great vision. She had earthen walls built around her military encampments for protection, and then expanded those walls (some still exist today!) to protect the cities in her kingdom. Gifted with the foresight to develop effective trade relationships which expanded her kingdom, she brought prosperity to her people. To capture the essence of her wealth and honor her military prowess, I envision Queen Amina's crown laded with expensive jewels and adorned with exotic feathers, yet its shape befitting a warrior. She is a queen whose countenance would be both dazzling and formidable. Your purchase of this treasure includes the distinctive Champagne Satin Cord topped Rosebud Sculpture Crown Case with its regal Purple hue and golden motif detail and the accompanying Brochure pictured. Harriet continues, "The history of The Great Queens of Africa has been passed down through the customs and the words of generation upon generation. So it has been in my family. Little written history has survived, but what is known is that matriarchal leadership was not uncommon through many races in ancient times and thus it was on the magnificent continent of Africa as well. The idea of strong and influential women as great leaders has inspired me for many years. I have now created crowns and headdresses that I envision could have been worn by these queens, designed to honor my vision of each queen. I dedicate the Queens Collection by Rosebud to the majesty, nobility, strength and wisdom present in each of us who share womanhood...who share the ancestry of our mothers and their mothers an on...until we at last arrive at the Great Queens of Africa."
