Back of Chung country.

Three kinds of shells are used.

The decoration  is in a kind of embroidery.

The vertical red lines (left and centre) may be dog's hair.

Different kinds of beads are used to hold in the shells: Indian cylindrical (amber, coral, and other kinds), and some glass, rounded, European trade beads.
