Two Lega Necklaces

Two Lega Necklaces

These two Lega necklaces were worn by chiefs and are made from large Leopard teeth with blue and white glass beads. Some of the teeth have been strengthened and bound together by copper wires. Just like in the black and white photography of a Lega chief - he is wearing two teeth necklaces.


Late 19th Century.
