some old jewels from Nubia
Nubia is a region in southern Egypt where it is believed the original Egyptians are from. I found several old pieces of Nubian jewelry for my collection. Here are a few photos for you to see.
The amulets are called zar. they ward off evil spirits and have ceremonies to do so. I love ancient culture so much. These pieces are over 80 years old the big bracelets are probably closer to 100. All are from Nubia or maybe Yemen.
