Nyati Silver Buffalo Cord Necklace



Nyati, the Swahili name for the Cape buffalo, is a strong and commanding animal in the savanna. While perceived to be amongst the most aggressive and dangerous of African mammals, it is actually quite placid when encountered in large herds.

Buffalos are great protectors and will often defend a member who is under attack from a predator. It signifies that while you are an individual being, you are also a member of society and should contribute and participate in the whole.

They represent community and sacrifice, encouraging you to fight for what you believe in and to support others. Buffalo herds are also symbolic of life, abundance and prosperity. They are a reminder to be grateful for what you have.

These animals also have exceptional memories. They are known to recognise both humans and lions that have hurt it in the past, and will attack them at their next encounter. It represents the need to both give and receive respect in all relationships.

May the mighty Nyati give you the strength to stand your ground, uphold your truth and not give in to the shoves of others.
