This pectoral ornament hails from a Naga tribe and would have been a great symbol of power. The necklace is comprised of around 130 wild water buffalo teeth.
The Naga people of Assam, India, and western Myanmar have long been regarded as fearless warriors and bloodthirsty headhunters.

Today, the wild water buffalo is highly endangered, and researchers estimate only a few dozen herds survive in Asia.
Like the buffalo they hunted, headhunters in Naga are disappearing just as quickly. As recently as 1969, tribes were still attacking each other and displaying defeated warriors’ heads in their trophy houses.
