A 'kalabubu' was always worn by men and was once reserved for head hunters and warriors. The round shape is made of coconut disks combined and finished with either brass or golden lock piece. The golden variants from North-Nias, known as 'Neftali-tali', were exclusively worn by high ranked men, on festive occasions like the Owasa fest. Unlike those from the north of Nias, which are finished with gold, the southern examples like this one are finished with brass.
