Tribal Shell Money Stick


The indigenous Asmat tribe of Papua much like their African ancestors used shells as currency. The shell money would be used as payment, trade, to buy land and also as a dowry for a bride. The Lumi Currency Stick or Money Stick made of various shells was highly respected and signified as an object of wealth. The length of the stick and the number of shells symbolize the status, wealth and prosperity of its owner. Money Sticks were one of the most valuable forms of shell money.
