Ox Teeth Necklace – Hamar Tribe – Omo Valley, Southern Ethiopia

Ox teeth, glass and metal beads. The necklace is cm. 27,5 in lenght. The Hamar, principally pastoralists, are the most readily identifiable of all the peoples of the South Omo. Women wear an elaborately decorated goatskin, often colored with beads and cowries. Beaded necklaces, bracelets and waistbands adorn their bodies, which, for the Hamar, tend to be made with black, yellow and red beads (the Banna, their close neighbors, mostly use blue and black beads). Cattle are the Hamar’s most prized possession. They measure wealth by number of cattle they own. Piece directly collected in Omo Valley. We guarantee that this item has been tribally used.
