This unusual neck adornment features at its centre a large wooden head carved in a light wood with pronounced features. The string is threaded with a combination of seeds, sections of wood and thin bamboo sections. At the top is a large-sized cowrie shell, exhibiting a lovely encrusted surface patina.
