Ethnic Jewels

An appreciation of ethnic jewellery and adornment

Dancer from Maumere, Flores

Both male and female dancers wore bells on their ankles. The boar tooth pendant is only worn by men. The size of the tooth is relative to the size of the boar, which can be either wild or domesticated. Boar tooth size is an indication of rank and skill of a hunter.
