Beautiful handcrafted Bone Naga Head worn as a trophy badge in the olden days by the erstwhile headhunter group.
This piece is strung with trade beads that were valuable as they were used for trade.í«í_
Includes some complex sophisticated beads with two colors.
Also has some rare Naga tiger bells.
Every element in this heirloom necklace - the head piece, the beads and the thread all have significant age.
Acquired on a trip to Nagaland in 2010 - photos of which can be seen on my blog.
