Vintage Afghan Hazara Tribal Jewelry Headdress

Classic vintage Hazara Tribal Jewelry for embellishing the forehead with lots of dangles, amulets and center spire. 

A row of fish-shaped amulets spans the front, with clattering dangles hanging below. Handcrafted in Central Asia during the mid 1900's.

The fish is a symbol for ultimate femininity throughout Central Asia and beyond. Fish live in water, and water as a life-giving source is associated with women. 

There are sharp hair-picks on one end and the top for attaching to caps, headgear, or directly to the hair. Loops on the end are also convenient for securing with a ribbon or cord, if preferred. 

A cotton lining adds comfort, with overhead bands for keeping securely in place on the head. A warm age patina gives this headdress a glow that only the passage of time can create.

About the HAZARA: Dramatic headpieces like this one are worn by women of all ages in the Hajarajat. 

The Hazara Tribe is considered by many to be the most ancient inhabitants of Afghanistan, with a history that goes back to before Alexander the Great.
