This camel bell came from the Ogaden desert area in southeastern Ethiopia. I've sold several of these bells, but I've never learned what they are made from. They are carved and wood, but definitely not 'glued'. This one has a rectangular figure on each side. Within the rectangle are 20 small squares cut diagonally. A 'leg' juts from each corner of the rectangle. Whether this represents a human (arms and legs) or a shield (whatever) I don't know its meaning.
