Khommisar, traditional Tuareg necklace (Niger)

Ref: KTOU14

A traditional Khommissar necklace, made by Tuareg craftsmen.

The Khommissar represents the stylised shape of the hand of Fatima, daughter of the Prophet.

It is a piece of jewellery worn mainly by women, and is given by the mother to her daughter when she reaches the age of 17.

It can be found in silver, as a symbol of direct protection from the Prophet, or in a white shell, thus bringing fertility and fecundity.
