This beautiful Nagaland Tribal pendant from three decades ago is one of the interesting finds that have made their way onto our studio shelves. Crafted in brass, this pendant features a row of three heads with simple facial features carved in. The pendants have loops on either end of the row of heads and above the first and last one to thread a cord through for hanging around the neck.
These pendants are often associated with the tribe’s headhunters and signify the number of heads taken. The surface of the pendants has a brushed finish that adds to the radiance and a faint patina that envelopes the entirety of the exposed surface.
Procured from Thanjavur, this pendant is estimated to be between 20 and 30 years of age.
