A HANDSOME TUAREG COUNTERWEIGHT FROM THE SAHARA, WEST AFRICA ( No 0144)

£59.00
This is a refined example of a counterbalance from the Tuareg people of West Africa.   Used to stop their indigo robes from flying up in the Saharan winds.  This is a worthy example.  The design is abstracted, and based on the Tuareg belief that symmetry is close to Godliness.  The patina is modern.   A fine example, in good condition,  Height approx 25 cm.  This item is decorative.  Does not stand unassisted.  A stand is not included.
