These CAPSIAN NEOLITHIC artifacts were found on an exposed African Neolithic site in the Sahara Desert in Northwest Africa. They were fashioned by ancient man (Homo sapiens sapiens) between 8,500 and 6,500 years ago.
These are classic artifacts of Neolithic body adornment and ornamentation. Nose, ear and lip plugs were part of the main personal decoration of an Neolithic man or woman over 6500 years ago in Africa. This is a set of THREE of the finest, hand-picked complete plugs in milk quartz. Each specimen is without breakage and displays beautiful polish and shape. It's impossible to know which plug was used for which part of the body so we include three closely matched. Completely durable and safe to wear for another 8500 years!
Archaeological sites of the African Neolithic yield some jewelry items and give us a glimpse of what body ornamentation and personal adornment looked like back in this period long ago. Beads, lip plugs and bracelets are sometimes found. Tools and weapons were an item of necessity but body jewelry reveals to us another side of the mind of primitive and ancient humans that the other artifacts do not give us. Perfect to display alongside similar period tools and weapons!
