On the Islands of Papua New Guinea people living in the coastal region developed a complex shell working technology focused first on shell fishhooks and shell adze blades. With the development of this technology they also produced the earliest known jewellery. This is a wonderful example of Conus shells with drilled holes to secure a bamboo bridge to be worn in the nose, with a single cowrie shell as ornamentation. This nose piece would be a wonderful addition to your home or collection.
Rare, shows age, very good condition.
