Sterling silver Duk-Duk pendant inspired by the Duk-Duk's from Rabaul. The pendant measures approximately 4.3cm in length including the bail, and weighs 9.5 grams.



The Duk-Duk society has religious and political as well as social objectives, in ritual dances, members of the society invoke the male spirit duk-duk and female spirit tubuan depending on which mask the dancer wears. The cone-shaped masks are constructed of cane and fibre, with short, bushy capes of leaves. Only males could belong to Duk-Duk, with an entrance fee in cowry shells strung on strips of cane. The society has its secret signs, rituals and festivals and only appeared with the full moon. Justice was executed, fines extorted, taboos, feasts, taxes and all tribal matters arranged by the Duk-Duk members, wearing masks or chalk on their faces. In carrying out punishments, they were allowed to burn houses and even kill people. Dancers wearing the tubuan masks were regarded as divine beings whose judgment and actions could not be questioned.
