Ear Adornment

Maasai, Kenya

Ear Adornment. Maasai, Kenya

Maasai ear adornments such as this are extremely rare. Most known examples arrived into early English collections during the colonial period. This rare ear adornment, carved from hippopotamus tooth, exhibits a beautiful form. Very fine zig-zag decorations, which have worn over time, are featured on one side of the adornment. The surface of the ear adornment has developed a lovely honey yellow patina.
