Large Tuareg Tahoua Cross of Agadez from Niger

This large Cross of Agadez pendant is one of 23 known variations favored by the various Tuareg tribal groups. Each cross style is associated with a different region or Tuareg clan group. 

The cross offered here is affiliated with the Tahoua Cross of Agadez from Niger. This pendant was sturdily made and does not bend. It is shipped with a black cord for wearing right away in the traditional way.
 
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.
