A great old shoulder or head scarf or - agounoun- from the Berber group of the Aït Hadiddou in Central High Atlas in Morocco. The -agounoun- was a part of a bride's attire at her her wedding and it was used as a shawl at the top of the shoulders or head under additional garments and headgear. Then she would not probably use it anymore in her lifetime. It was usually made from an old piece of wool that was then tie-dyed in basically two colours. The characteristic design of a large circle surrounded by smaller oners would be referred to a the -stars and the moon-. A lovely piece of ethnic art. Mid-XXth century or earlier.
