TUAREG TENT POST | The nomadic Tuareg span several countries across the Sahara. These posts, hand engraved with tribal motifs, have a few uses. We learned that this variety is made of Jdari wood and was actually used for either a luggage rack or a camel palanquin. One end is forked where a frame will rest while the other is carved like a mushroom so the structure will not sink into the sand.
Depending on the tribe making the post, the sculptures feature different shapes and symbols personal to the group.

** each pole has lived a life before arriving to your home. Pieces will show signs of age and character as displayed in photographs. This could include splinters in the wood, areas of recessed carving and chips as shown in photos.
