Neck chain

Inventory number 042849
Necklace made from the seeds of the Appaki plant. It is often worn in the Cordillera villages. Cords longer than this chain are usually part of the Ifugao dukaw. Some villages still make this necklace and sell it in rarity shops or at the annual cultural celebrations. Modern necklaces and bags are also made from the Appaki seeds. Text: Prof. Dr. Leah E.
