  This is a Konyak Naga warrior's necklace, indicating that the wearer was a headhunter who had accrued fertility and status as a member of a head taking war party.  A warrior and embodiment of the masculine ideal... enemies would flee or fall before him, dangerous wild game become status trophies in his wake, and Naga maidens would have found such a person desirable as a partner. This is the status and fertility such a medallion signifies.
