The old dyed red, yellow and blue plant fiber pectoral is adorned with dog’s teeth and nassa sea shells. This pectoral pr necklace would have been worn as a sign of prestige and wealth, and worn during public ceremonies and celebrations. Dog's Teeth were used for currency or when buying a bride, compensation and land payment and buying pigs, and were worn only by men of status in a village. It was significant and important to the man who created it and wore it. This is an excellent Dogs Teeth Pectoral adornment, with beautiful woven plant fiber backing.
