Papua New Guinea Fruit Bat Flying Fox Teeth Necklace Brides Price Currency Bat Teeth Necklace

$250.00

This is an amazing and fabulous Old Flying Fox (Fruit Bat) Teeth Necklace from the Boiken people from the Prince Alexander Mountains, Sepik Province, Papua New Guinea.
The flying fox (blakbokis or fruit bat) necklace is from the grass country between Wewak and the Sepik River. A gap is cut in the tree line along a ridge to make a shortcut for the bats as they return from their nightly fruit foraging. After a few nights, a net is hung between the trees to trap them. The bats are eaten and their delicate teeth are saved for necklaces and strung with alternating trade store beads for color. This would be unique in your home or collection.
