This is a beautiful piece to have for your wall decoration, as a boundary for a round picture frame, or even a dressing costume for Halloween. The necklace is made from colored beads embeded in raw animal hide. The Maasai wedding necklace, engarewa, worn by the bride on her wedding day, is symbolic through colours and patterns. The colour of each bead in the necklace is chosen for its meaning in Maasai culture: Red for unity, blood, and bravery; blue for peace, water, and the sky; green for health and the land; orange for the gourds that hold the milk that is offered to visitors; yellow for the hospitality signified by animal skins on guest beds; white for purity; and black for the hardships of life which the bride and groom will weather together! The necklace has a diameter of 9 inches and is 11 inches at its widest (including the chest rest portion). The strings are 19 inches long.
