Perhaps the oldest form of human art, beads are the first tangible evidence of emerging peoples able to think abstractly and utilize symbolism. From the beginning, the shape, color, pattern, material or manufacturing skills invested ensured beads were used as powerful amulets, indispensable for propitiating the gods, personal protection, community status and personal adornment to enhance beauty.
