Kalabubu, sometimes spelled Kala bubu, is a torc (stiff circular necklace) worn by warriors of the people of South Nias of North Sumatra, Indonesia. Kalabubu symbolizes triumph in warfare and heroism. Wearing a kalabubu was believed to protect the wearer from harm. Kalabubu is popularly known as the “headhunter’s necklace”; historically only those who already decapitated the head of the enemy tribes are allowed to wear the kalabubu.

How to care for this Nias Kalabubu Necklace?
To clean your antique jewelry, you have to be soft and persistent instead of harsh and fast. It’s common to use tools such as a soft toothbrush or washcloth to soak the cleaning solution and rub the jewelry. Once the jewelry is covered, wash it with cold water. You can repeat the process until you’re satisfied!

Note: Wood is a naturally grown raw material. Each wood species has characteristic features and decorative particularities called “grains”. In the same way, as no tree is like any other, no two sheets of veneer or wood are the same. The color, pattern, and structure of each sheet of veneer or wood are unique. Kaliuda Gallery's furniture products are made from solid wood. Woodgrain structure will differ in each product. The grain structure of the actual furniture delivered is sure to be different from the one shown in the pics.
