Behold: the last of my photos from the Bowers Museum. This was probably my favorite exhibit (Spirits and Headhunters: Art of the Pacific Islands).
Oh and yes, that is a necklace made of teeth. Human teeth. Yikes.
Can you believe this heavy stone (below) was used as a form of currency? Imagine lugging this around:
These are actually war shields. I think they’re too pretty to use for fighting!
Yes, that’s another tooth necklace. I believe it was made from dog teeth…
Neat exhibit, huh? Alright – that’s the last of my photos from the museum. It’s on the smaller side, but definitely worth a visit! Address below.
