Maasai elders no longer wear jewelry to accentuate their fine physique and achievements as warriors. Now their adornment is sparse and they carry few possessions, except for a beaded bamboo snuff container (a traditional gift from a first born daughter.), a wildebeest tail fly whisk, and a thick red cotton blanket. -Angela Fisher, "Africa Adorned"
This Maasai beaded snuff container is made from bamboo with the end caps beautifully beaded with a long metal chain to hang from.
