There are 21 models different of Cross of the South. Each cross is the symbol of a city and makes it possible to know the hometown of the nomads who wear it. It is difficult to be categorical on their origin. According to certain studies, the crosses would exist from Pharaonic Egypt. But it could be also that they go back to one more recent pre-Islamic period, at the time where the tribes were influenced by the Christianity and the symbol of the Christian cross.
These silver jewels are carried out by the Touarègues blacksmiths according to the technique of the lost wax, whose first stage consists in modelling out of wax a coarse counterpart of the cross. This form is then coated with clay and is passed to the oven. The temperature liquefies the wax which escapes by an end, thus releasing a hollow terra cotta mould in which the silver is run. After cooling, the craftsman breaks the clay mould to withdraw the rough cross from it. It is filing and engraving lengthily that he finishes the cross.
