English: Ear ornament made from a hornbill's beak
Nederlands: Oorsieraad. Dit oorsieraad werd gedragen door mannen. Oorspronkelijk was het een teken dat de drager een succesvolle koppensneller was geweest. De bovenzijde is versierd met een asu-motief (mythische hond), welke de bedoeling heeft te zorgen voor een magische bescherming tegen onheil en kwaad. De asu heeft kenmerken van een hond of draak, maar toont ook overeenkomsten met de Indo-Javaanse makara (mythisch waterdier).. Oorsieraad van de snavel van een neushoornvogel
Unknown language: Sabau
Date 1900-1925
