Waist belt - very old - ornamented with pear-shaped sections of white shell, also cowrie and other ground shells.

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.

SKULL WITH BUFFALO HORNS

***********************

Head of mixed Chang and Ao looted from a head-hunting village.

The head when severed from the body is skinned and boiled in a pot; then scraped and ornamented with horns or wood or bone.

The object of this is that the dead man shall not hear the voices of his relatives calling him, and they will not therefore be warned by him but will come close in their search - so that their heads may be taken too.

Sometimes a dog's skull is suspended over the man's with the same object - since the dog's yapping will deafen the man.

Ao, Mokokchung village.
