This necklace comes from Papua in Indonesia and is made out of rooster feathers and shells embroidered on to a natural fiber crochet base.
It was a symbol of the bond between human and nature, used during big ceremonies.
In several myths, the rooster has the power to revive the dead or to make a wish come true. It is considered sacred within the spiritual realm.
It comes complete with a blackened metal stand and its story printed for you inside a beautiful envelope.
Dimensions: the heights vary slightly between 60 - 70cm tall and 40 - 45cm wide with the stand.
