This necklace was collected in 1966 by Kenneth Kensinger among the Kaxinawá, who live in the Amazon jungle of eastern Peru. It includes 9 rows of teeth (approximately 574 teeth in total), which were collected after cooking the heads of monkeys. This type of necklace is constructed by male craftsmen who also weave the cotton string. It is a piece of high prestige as it is a sign of a good hunter. It is meant to be worn on formal occasions and during mourning.
