TUAREG, STORAGE POSTS, Niger

These Bela posts have been vetted as authentic with signs of use and age.

Simultaneously utilitarian and decorative, carved posts served various functions in Tuareg tents: holding up wall mats, dividing living spaces and supporting storage containers of various sorts. These large Y-shaped posts were used in pairs for storage of rolled objects (mats, blankets, clothing) laid between the two forks.
