$950.00
Ear piercing was an important ceremony performed on every Zulu child before puberty. The hole in the earlobe had to be stretched considerably over a period of time to accommodate these large earplugs. The colors of the earplugs could be used to indicate the domicile of origin & also clan affiliation of their owners. Certain color combinations evoked associations with stages in the cycle of life. Most importantly, the earplugs identified the wearer as being Zulu.
