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

Ref: KTOU21

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 central, elevated Silver ball symbolises the particular social status of the person wearing it.

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.
