A great old Berber silver on copper talisman -hirz- pendant from the region of the Ida ou Semlal in Western Anti Atlas in Morocco. It features a nice incised decoration and classic elements of Berber iconography reinforcing the protective effect of the amulet, together with a central red glass cabochon. It would contain some verses from the Holy Quran to protect its owner from evil. Most likely a part of a necklace together with like talisman. Other denominations: -herz-, -kitab-, -gris-gris, -boîte à Coran-. First half of the XXth century.
