Descripción
Adorno de cinturón - Concha, Nácar - Fikum - Bontoc - Ifugao, Filipinas
2ª mitad siglo XX - En buen estado, usado con algunos signos de desgaste

The Fikum or Tikam is a large engraved gold lipped oyster shell worn somewhere at the waist, in front or one of the sides by men of the head hunting Bontoc tribe of the Northern Luzon, Philippines. The shell is engraved around the edge with geometric designs (locally a design called minamais - corn
designs) derived from tattooing and has large coconut shell discs in the center, front and back (no coconut shell on the back). Like the stunning shell necklace of the Ifugao's in Mayaoyao this is its counterpart - a high status symbol ornament which is only owned by a few men of the tribe and
usually reserved for special occasions.
