Pendant shell Ki’i teunga kahoa
Humphrey No. 83: ‘A round flat pendant formed of the tail-part of a large Volute Shell, and usually affixed to their Necklaces by the Natives of the Friendly Isles.’
The white disc is perforated at the upper edge. A dashed, red-brown line runs in a spiral from the edge into the middle of the shell. A light yellow spiral runs between these dashed spirals. The piece Oz 190 features a very similar disc as a pendant. Inken Köhler, Ulrike Rehr, Gundolf Krüger
