Papua New Guinea Skirt Lumi Shell Cache- Sex Apron

$450.00

This is a Fabulous Lumi Shell Skirt or a Cache-Sex Apron Worn by Unmarried Women in West/Upper Sepik Region, Papua New Guinea. This skirt would be like a petticoat that that is strung on handmade twine fiber that wraps around the waist and ties in the back. The skirt would be adorned with rows of clam shells and cone shells with bits and pieces of both shells in large and small pieces. Often times in villages ceremonies these aprons would play in an important life-cycle event and especially when a girl reaches puberty. These types of Cache-Sex garments exist in in several cultures, with a variety of material used depending on their location and culture. Usually, the length of the garment, the amount of shells used would represent the wealth and prestige of its owner. This would be a wonderful item to add to your collection or home.
