Mali: splendid old Tuareg ring in Silver (1950s)

Ref: KTOU18

A beautiful, old Tuareg ring, decorated with popular ornamental motifs: a combination of lines and triangles called 'sandals of the Prophet'.

This decoration has, on the one hand, a protective function against bad influences and, on the other hand, it can show a person's social rank, wealth and prestige in society.

The wavy lines engraved on the sides of the ring symbolise water, whose magical function is to wash away human illnesses.

It should be remembered that for the Tuareg, silver is a sacred and protective material. That is why most of their talismans and jewellery are made of this metal.
