Mauritanian Shell Ring

19th century, Mauritania, NW Africa
This shell, hand cut and etched 100+ years ago to be worn in the hair is pure art.  The sterling is the superb work of our silversmith.   It is this kind of piece that some Modernists were looking at when they made their sculptures and paintings.  Pure beauty by the people.
