This elegant piece was hand-crafted by silversmiths of the Mohamed Ahnou tribe of the North Sahara from Sterling Silver. Silver is believed to bring good luck and happiness. The patterns etched on this piece hold deep tribal significance. The half circle represents the moon and its importance in a Tuareg’s life. Tuaregs are nomads who travel across many borders of North African desert nations. Since the desert is incredibly hot during the day, they usually reserve travel for the night time, utilizing the light of the moon and familiar stars as a reliable compass. Triangles and diamonds are prominently etched motifs and are considered a source of protection and good luck. They represent the life-giving power of women and nature and embody the very essence of female divinity. They are a symbol of femininity reflecting the matriarchal aspect of Tuareg culture.The Track of the Ants is represented by the symbol “/\/\/\/\/\”. In times of severe drought and shortage of food, people would follow the trails of ants to find their nests where they would dig to find grains of millet that the ants had carried away. This is a powerful reminder of how tough times can be and the importance of being resourceful and aware of your surroundings in difficult times. Wear this piece as a reminder of your quest for spiritual upliftment and in celebration of your adaptability and resilience.©
