In earlier times the Sumbanese practiced artificial elongation of the earlobes, mamuli were worn as ear ornaments, but today they are hung around the neck as pendants or attached to garments. The overall forms of mamuli represent stylized female genitalia; however, each is considered either male or female depending on its secondary characteristics. Male mamuli, such as the present work, have flaring bases, which, in the finest examples, are embellished with minute figures of humans, animals, or other subjects.
