This charming, unusual and finely crafted bag was probably worn around the waist, possibly as a cache sex. It is adorned with beads both at the edges of the bag and strap with two tiny blue beads woven into the body of the bag. We have been unable to find any similar examples and only tentatively locate its origin to the Congo basin.
