Necklage from the Hmong, Laos
This wonderful Necklage is part of the modern traditional costume of the laotien Hmong. The aluminium is from the oxo´s from the vietnam war. Unexploded ordnance (UXO) are explosive weapons (bombs, bullets, shells, grenades, land mines, naval mines, etc.) that did not explode when they were employed and still pose a risk of detonation, potentially many decades after they were used or discarded. About one third of Laos remains contaminated with UXO left behind from the Vietnam War, including about 80 million cluster munitions.
Small pieces and more decoration than to use. (or you have a real small head)
Around 10 years old.
