Large Agadez Compass with Pyrite
The Tuareg Compass of Agadez traditionally signifies protection and serves as a tool of guidance through life’s passages. This piece is embellished with triangular shapes and symbols of the four directions on earth. Often given from father to son among these nomadic people it is meant to help one never to lose their way, both physically and metaphysically.
Hand-knotted pyrite and silver accents make up an 18.5 inch necklace that supports this large pendant which is 3.5 inches top to bottom, and 2.5 inches wide.
