Frame with Septum Tusk, a Tribal Nose Decoration from Papua



This nose decoration/Septum tusk is carved out of clamshell, deriving from Papua New Guinea.

It's encapsulated inside a gold colored wooden frame with a white fabric base and cream colored passe-partout.

Since ancient times septum tusks have been worn by different tribes in Papua during important ceremonies, intended to give the wearer power and the appearance of a wild boar.

The most notorious tribe known to wear the Septum tusks are the Asmat,
the most famous cannibalistic tribe on Papua.
The Asmat were also warriors and headhunters who did not only hunt for skulls but also worshipped them, putting them in honorable places in their homes.

The frame comes complete with its story printed out for you inside a beautiful envelope.

A great gift for yourself or someone who has obtained or needs power!
