Description

Tuareg "Cross of Agadez" "My son, I give you the Four Corners of the world. Because one cannot know where one will die…" This large, distinctive Cross of Agadez is a true work of art, hand-signed by the Tuareg craftsman on the back in Tomasbeck or Araic. The bold design symbolizes both the Four Cornes of the world and the ancient influence of Christianity. In times of drought these valuable crosses are used as trading currency to buy cattle, cloth or food. Once worn only by men and passed down from father to son, this striking jewelry is now worn proudly by women too. Good weight and solid feel make this historical, exciting work of art a top seller. Made in Mali. Pendant is 1 1/2" long. J-N050
