|Object:||Headhunter’s necklace (kalabubu)|
|Estimated Period:||After 2000|
|Country of Origin:||Indonesia|
|Condition:||Excellent condition - barely used with minimal signs of aging & wear|
A ‘kalabubu’ was always worn by men and was once restricted to head hunters and warriors. The circular form is made from coconut disks joined together and finished with either brass or gold terminals. The gold versions of northern Nias known as ‘nifitali-tali’ were exclusively worn by high ranking men on festive occasions such as the owasa feast. In difference to those from northern Nias which are finished with gold, the southern examples like this one were finished with brass.
