Naga necklace Five Brass Figures and Two Fish
This is an unusual Naga necklace with five cut-out full male figures flanked by a fish pendant on either side. Take a close look at the faces and you will see that each of the brass pieces is unique. The cutting out of the voids is an unusual extra step which had to have been done individually by hand and indicates the care to which the craftsman went. The necklace is strung with traditional orange cylindrical Naga glass beads.

Each of the seven pendants measures between 2-1/2 and 2-3/4 inches (including the loop). The overall length of the beads is twenty-five inches. The patina of the piece could only come from many years of use.
