This is a fabulous Tuareg Carved Wood Wedding Tent Post from the Nomadic People of Niger. Because of their nomadic nature, each Tuareg family had a tent. Each woman receives her tent as a marriage gift, a symbol of her domestic role; however, the domestic role of the Tuareg women is more highly honored than in most cultures because of the Tuareg’s matrilineal society. The tent holds many distinct purposes, among them the location of rites of passage, a site for negotiation, and a meeting place. Every Tuareg family receives tent poles as gifts; however, the extent to which the pole is ornamented suggests their level of wealth. This particular pole at shows meticulous decoration created by abstract geometric carvings. The decorated tent post with carvings on the post such as this would have been set in the middle of one’s tent, serving as a spot to recline against. A unique Item to compliment your home or collection.
