Ear Ornament (Ear Plug)

44.19.346

Currently not on display

Round disc-shaped ear plug with one side slightly convex. The pronounced groove around the circumference enables it to be fitted into a distended earlobe. In the past, before 2006, it has been wrongly interpreted as a "pulley shaped disc".
