Tribal Art Gallery
This rare and superb gold disk pectoral is from West/Central Timor Island, probably the Meo subgroup of the Atoni tribe. Made from low-karat gold with designs composed of small hammered dots on the surface, it was used as a badge of honor, in former times awarded in association with headhunting.
