Huge Tuareg Cross of Agadez Necklace from Africa

A huge Tuareg Cross of Agadez pendant hangs from a black onyx chain in this wonderful tribal jewelry necklace from Africa. There are 23 known variations of the Cross of Agadez favored by the various Tuareg tribal groups, as well as hundreds of local variations.

This cross offered here is affiliated with the Madoua Cross of Agadez. The linear designs represent important creatures within the Tuareg social group - both animal and human.

The back has the Tuareg artisan's characteristic signature, also of intersecting and parallel lines.
 
Pendants like this were given by Tuareg father's to their sons, who either wore them themselves, or gave them to their betrothed as an expression of purest love. Each of the different Cross of Agadez styles represents a combination of the "o" female symbol and the "+" male symbol. 

Women are very highly regarded in Tuareg society and are considered full tribal members in every sense. A Cross of Agadez celebrates the richness of the nomadic Tuareg people inclusive of all their members.
