FULANI NECKLACE 3
Photographs © Tim Hamill
FULANI, NECKLACE 3, 18.5", $100, SOLD
The Fulani, many of whom are nomadic, live in an area from Mali
in the west to Cameroon in the east. Modesty aprons, cache-sex jewelry,
denote age, status and social condition. They were worn to attract attention
and protect against evil.
The necklaces show an inventive combination of beads, chain metalwork,
small cast pieces and British West African coins. The two with leatherwork
relate to both Kirdi beaded aprons and Tuareg leatherwork.
