Afghan Heart Pendant-Brooch
Guimet Museum Jewellery Collection
This pendant is inspired by a piece of jewellery from Central Asia that dates back to the first half of the XIXth century and is now conserved at the Guimet Museum of Asian Arts.
Few ethnic groups have created clothing and finery as stunning as the Turkomans'. The heart is a characteristic shape in the artistic tradition of these nomadic shepherds.
