This post has been vetted as authentic.

Forked tigettewin posts were used in various ways in each Tuareg family's tent, holding leather bags or supporting one end of a wooden rod which in turn held saddle and camel bags.

Although the wood is extremely hard, some of the tigettewin posts have eroded ends, splits or cracks. We have photographed them to show the small flaws in the details. The black metal bases are included in the price.
