Berber Kitab Pendant

A beautiful scooped silver Tuareg kitab (book amulet) from South Morocco. The patterning, essentially made up of corners, points and circles, is derived from the Berber script which is composed of symbols with very simple geometric forms. Notice the absence of a ring bail for the necklace. Here, the silver sheet is itself turned back along the full length of the pendant. Worn as a protective talisman, it usually contains verses (surah) from the Holy Koran.

This pendant is provided on a complimentary suede or fabric thread (not shown in the photo).
