Seller: mstemp ✉️ (1,491) 100%, Location: Austin, Texas, US, Ships to: US & many other countries, Item: 124721773234 Naga ~ 3 Ear Rings / Ornaments ~ Naga Peoples, Tribe ~ N. India. Up for grabs are 3 very fine and rare Naga Earrings or Ear Ornaments. I think the shells are conch from the Bay of Bengal. The Naga live in Northern India, I think Assam Kukis of Manipur State. Worn more as an ear covering I do believe. All three are stylized Human Forms. One shell has two human forms. I have owned these since maybe the mid 1980's. They are original and antique examples. These stylized human forms may have specific meaning which you can research.They are I think maybe hung by string over the ear and fastened by mechanism which secures them to the front of the ear and hidden behind the ear. The locking mechanism is made maybe of "a bamboo like material" which receives a wooden or bamboo like pin, and is attached with a hand made string. One has the complete attachment mechanism, the second may have part of the string missing, and the third only has part of the attachment mechanism remaining. Hard to describe, but maybe the images will clarify. Red heart and white beads are what anchors the string through the bead to the mechanism on the back.All three come with custom made stands for display. Condition: Excellent condition of Shells.
