Indian ceremonial garland. The garland has a thick and rigid, semi-circular tube around the back of the neck with gilded papier mache ends. There are two long padded sausage shapes at the front. The three saucer shapes are edged with fringing, there is one at each of the upper ends of the padded sausages and the third one hangs at the bottom of the garland. The garland is made of paper, papier mache and card. The bead decorations are gilded. The other parts have heavily embroidered ribbons and beads and floss fringing pinned in place. From the saucer shapes there are fine sticks with pearls threaded onto them. There are birds pinned to the object. The garland is heavily decorated with tinsel, foil papers, spangles and floss silk.
