Camel Bell Currency | Somalia

£260

DESCRIPTION
These Camel bells are from the Darod people from Somalia. For centuries camels have been the backbone of the Somalian economy, symbolising the nomadic lifestyle with traditional uses for milk and transport, as well as being highly prized possessions.
 
The wooden bells are hand-carved with a wooden peg inside the bell and finished with a leather or rope braided strap. Whilst their simplicity and lack of embellishment reflects their practical purpose, they hold great significance and are often featured in Somalian poetry and literature.

Style as a sculptural decorative piece anywhere in the home.
