Adornment - Tribal Jewelry Show

Tambaran Gallery / February 2 - March 31, 2012 / New York, New York


Tribal Jewelry dating from 500AD to the 1960s and spanning dozens of cultures originating in locales as diverse as India, Africa, Persia, Central America, Oceania and China, is the subject of a new show, “Adornment” from February 2 - March 31 at TAMBARAN (www.tambaran.com) gallery at 5 East 82nd Street in New York. Tribal jewelry sold by TAMBARAN gallery over the past 30 years has attracted legendary style icons including Jackie Onassis, Dodie Rosencrans and Audrey Hepburn. “Adornment is a universal ritual. More than mere exhibition, many of these objects are deeply spiritual, demonstrating the wearer’s distance inward. The diverse and creative examples of personal adornment are staggering. Whether it is 'in' or 'out' of fashion, ancient or contemporary, it is the manner in which people express their cultural differences. In our hyper-commercialized, designer-branded world, those attracted to Tribal Jewelry are as fascinated by the stories behind these pieces as they are with their beauty" ---Maureen Zarember, TAMBARAN gallery
