A lovely Kalabubu necklace tribal from Nias Indonesia, comprised of polished discs of coconut strung onto a solid brass band, the ‘kalabubu’ was worn exclusively by males and once restricted to those who had attained the status of a warrior or headhunter. For the most chiefly aristocratic warriors, the elegant torque would have been covered in gold leaf, the ultimate marker of nobility and a connection with the gods.
