Art Apparel

Add punch to the mix a The Mounted Papuan Necklace from Anserai. Inspired by the traditional ‘bilas’ ceremonial attire of the Papuan tribes, the ‘money cowrie’ shells were traditionally used as currency. Made in the last two years, this elaborate piece was meticulously constructed from natural shells and woven fibres and sit upon an oak brown base. www.anserai.com
