New Guinea Highlands
Crescent shaped necklace (kina) of gold-lip mother-of-pearl shell. Holes drilled at the two points, into which a white silk cord is knotted and stitiched. On one knot, traces of red pigment, possibly indicating festival wear. Small shallow hole, probably natural, about four cm. from one tip.
Gift of Leonard and Helen Evelev
