248 Antique Orissa Adivasi Tribal Anklets Jewelry

Brass or Bronze with a simple naive design

Worn by the adivasi tribal women and men of Odisha

These tribes are extremely vulnerable and are now protected by the government, and direct contact with them is restricted. Their old pieces and traditional arts are therefore difficult to acquire.

Estimated to be from the early - mid 1900s

Presented here in as-found condition - all the layers of life lived by the ornament have been retained.
