The collar papuan must reflect the prestige, the stature and the authority of the person who wears it. People spend so many hours of work for it to be the most impressive possible ! The materials used are simply those available close to the papuan tribes : the feathers of a cock, of seashells, of braidings plants (raffia, seagrass or water hyacinth), and sometimes of pearls, wood or terracotta.
It is usually the tribal chief, who has the necklace the more imposing, because the villagers have participated in its manufacture in order to make a piece remarkable.
