Here we have a pair of fine antique Naga head hunter bracelets. They are bronze with rows of spikes along the outer surface. These are clearly in accord with the "Naga aesthetic", which is characterized by a pronounced martial orientation, these served a defensive purpose in protecting the wrist in close quarter combat during head taking raids, as well as offensive purpose, as a blow to any place on an opponent's body could inflict injury given the spiked surface.
