This wonderful Bailer Shell and Jobe's Tear Necklace/Headdress from the Southern Highlands of Papua New Guinea. Shells in general were highly valued as traditional wealth by the people in the interior of New Guinea where they had to travel through trading from the coast where they were collected to hundreds of kilometers through some of the most rugged terrain on the planet. These cut Bailer Shells were used as an ornament during traditional ceremonies, but they were also used as a traditional currency and often used as bridal dowries paid by a young mans family. The Bailer shell is a treasured possession. This Shell headdress would be a wonderful addition to your collection or home.
