Large Turkmen Teke Tribal Jewellery Crown Headpiece

This exceptional Turkmen Teke Tribal Jewellery Headpiece is crowned with an elaborate pair of Eagle heads facing in opposite directions. This is a favorite amuletic motif throughout Central Asia, and is said to protect the wearer from harm. The eye-shaped large Carnelian beads that cover the front are also said to ward of the evil eye.

Stylized fish-shaped charms span the lower border, clattering with movement to make a wonderful sound. Fish are a greatly revered symbol throughout this region and beyond. In this region, Fish are believed to invigorate and assure a harmonious long life. They are associated with the highest forms of femininity, since they live in water, and water is life-giving. There are loops along the sides for threading a ribbon or cord to secure to the head. Headdresses like this can also be worn attached to a cap underneath for added stability.

This is an expertly made replica of antique Turkmen Tribal Jewelry handcrafted by a skilled artisan living in the Kunduz province along the Turkmen border. His replicas are always true to tradition and exceptionally well made using the finest and sturdiest materials. Jewelry making like this is becoming a lost art, and we have not seen any contemporary jewelry work that compares to the top quality of his. This magnificent Turkmen Tribal headpiece is a Museum Quality replica and art piece.
