A vuasagale made of 28 small whale teeth carved to a claw-like or fang-like shape, from Nasirotu, Naitasiri. Vuasagale were generally made from Pilot Whale or False Killer Whale teeth and were largely replaced in the 1800s by the Waseisei style of necklace made from Sperm Whale teeth. The cord is not original.
