An original antique red 31-strand Naga necklace embraces and wraps around a beautifully carved antique shell from Papua New Guinea. The Naga people, from the hills of northeast Indian and western Burma, were amazingly creative in their adornments. They were also avid headhunters, something of a cultural anomaly since they were surrounded by Buddhists in three directions and Hindus to the south.
