Bonjour à tous

Here is a curious bilum from PNG, Star Mountain area. The specificities of this hunter bilum are the "tassels" that are hunging on the face. They appear to be made of cocoons made of silk with coarse vegetal fibbers or tiny branches inclued into the cocoon silk . This matter is very special and "impressive", being half animal and vegetal. This is the second bilum of this type I get ; I am looking for technical datas on the cocoons' matter and preparation, and for symbolic meanings.
