Cross of Agadez

Agadez cross comes from the nomadic tribes of North Africa and was used as a talisman against the evil eye, and was considered a powerful good luck charm.  It was originally worn by men, and would be given to a boy when he reached puberty.  Traditionally it was given from father to son, where the father would say “my son, I give you the four corners of the earth, because no man knows where he will die.”  The number four is usually found engraved on the cross as a symbol of the four directions, north, east, south, and west.
