Queen Ramonda’s Isicholo



In the first Black Panther film, Queen Ramonda, played by Angela Bassett, wears a cream-colored isicholo. An isicholo is a traditional Zulu headpiece worn by married women that signifies their place in the community. Queen Ramonda’s isicholo is an example of how traditional African aesthetics were placed into futuristic settings, blending ancient traditions with modern technology.
