Arrow Belt from Nagaland

This is an unusual old belt from Nagaland. Nagaland is in the far north east of India, a densely forested region inhabited by tribal peoples who live by hunting and until fairly recent times were known for head hunting. This old belt is also a quiver, a container for the arrows that the Nagas use for hunting.

Bone panels are sewn onto a rough fabric belt, the bone panels themselves are decorated with patterns of circles and geometric lines. The wooden front of the belt which forms the quiver is decorated with brass roundels and two wooden skulls and the remains of dyed tufted fibres. Rattan bark strips hold the edifice together.

Dimensions: 85x28cm.
