    Mbarava - Solomon Islands

    Considered the most sacred and respected object in this region, the Mbarava plaque is carved from a flat plate carved from the fossilized shell of an imposing stoup. The base is made up of one or more rings, above which are motifs that create an incredible lacework of small, interlocking figures. These plaques bear witness to the clan's identity and wealth.
