We went to the museum here yesterday. It was full of interesting things about the history of the people in PNG. Honestly there was way more than I could really appreciate in one trip…especially when that trip included all 3 kiddos. So maybe another trip will be in our future. I actually have more pics than this, but the computer was being TERRIBLY slow uploading tonight, so I thought I’d just share with you one of my favorite things from the museum. The finger necklace.
Its basically like it sounds, a necklace with fingers on it!
Apparently some people group here (or maybe several people groups) made necklaces like these as a way of grieving and wore the body parts of their deceased relatives.
You can read here what was on this specific necklace that we saw at the museum.
Here are some more interesting necklaces. Any guesses what is on them?
