Now Only:$145.00 On Sale!


After leather, wood is perhaps the most important material in Saharan daily life, and is used for the poles and beams of the Nomads' tents. They are used to hang bags, saddles as well as bed frames, dishes, cups, milking bowls, mortars and pestles. Each pole is sharpened to a point for standing upright in a nomadic encampment, and the upper half is eloborately carved and pierced with semicircles and triangluar shapes.
