Old Tuareg Brass Men's Fertility Pendant on Neck Cord

This old ring-shaped pendant with phallic-shaped appendage was worn by Tuareg men as a virility amulet.

The cord has a secure lobster-claw clasp.

About the TUAREG: The African Tuareg consist of widely dispersed nomadic tribes in Northern Africa who are renowned for their great noble bearing.

Sometimes referred to as the "First People," the Tuareg say that they have inhabited the northern span of Africa for millennia - a claim that history supports. 

The Tuareg are undisputed masters of the desert, skillfully venturing with aplomb where others could not survive.

Men and women hold equal rank with Tuareg society, with the men veiling their faces rather than the women.
