Item details

Vintage from the 1960s

Beautiful beaded necklace worn by the Maasai women of Southern Kenya and Northern Tanzania. Multistrand, with deep lapis color blue and white glass beads. In Maasai cosmology the blue beads symbolize energy and sustenance and the color of the sky which provides water for the people and their cattle. The white beads represent purity and health, symbolizing the cow’s milk that provides the sustained nourishment upon which Maasai culture depends on. Measures about 24 inches overall. Good condition, suitable for wear or display.
