A necklace made by Taranaki artist Jennifer Laracy, from the series ' The Last of the Milk and Honey '. The necklace is composed of two cream and grey cow horns, with a number of resin-coated, black and white seaweed pieces protruding from the open ends of the horns. This has been designed to look like a cornucopia. At the top of the horns there is a string of small cream shells attached by two metal ends to the horns, forming the chain of the necklace.
