http://collections.aucklandmuseum.com/ontology/core/researcherComments KH sessions notes: te ntabo is the name for is one. The red cut shell ornament. this is a segment of a red shell on human hair – the entire ornament is important and significant – red pendant on black string of human hair. Nowadays red plastic is cut into this shape because the shell is not commonly found anymore. The significance of red is important: Red colour is important and Luisa said that Fiji Airways put in red airport runway lights because of new night time flights, that got taken by the local people because of the importance placed on red. Red is highly sought after because it is beautiful. p.159 G.Koch - 'For islanders there is something mysterious about the origin of the material for the larger specimens , which is shown by the name given to the shell fish: koikoinanti = 'small shell of the spirits'; it is found only rarely and then below water on the reefs of the outer lagoon, having apparently lost the animal inside of it...... it is usually an heirloom and those who wear one are thus able to demostrate that their ancestors were very skilled in the ruoia dances. cont.

http://purl.org/dc/elements/1.1/description Te Ntabo. Red shell neck ornament. This is a pendant that has been cut from the shell of koikoinanti (Spondylous ducalis). It is convex in form and shaped like an almond. The convex surface has been smoothed to show a slightly polished area. A shallow furrow runs along an angle across the exterior. Opposite, the concave surface shows the remains of the original interior of the shell and is of a transparent white colour where the red exterior can be seen. The depth of the shell material can be seen from where it has been cut into an almond shape. The convex surface is made up of dark red and white lines that curve across the pendant. A circular perforation has been drilled into the more curved end of the almond shaped ornament. A two-ply braid of dark brown human hair and/or kora (coconut sennit fibre cordage) would be threaded through the drilled perforation to form a neck band. It would be worn around the neck, placed above the bunna (throat ornament of human hair) and worn mostly by men. The koikoinanti can also be referred to as 'the small shell of the spirits' and is regarded a highly valuable possession.
