Detail Photos

This is a Naga warrior's necklace, indicating that the wearer was a headhunter. The shape of the medallion resembles conch shell with fish tails, and their is a row of primitively cast heads along the top row.  The medallion hangs on a string with large conch shell beads, a more common red or orange Naga bead and to top it off - a pair of bear's canine teeth.  Fantastic!
