This contemporary design was inspired by the Frigate bird of which the people of Melanesia saw as being very sacred in the Santa Cruz religion. 

Frigate birds are a family of seabirds which are found across all tropical and subtropical oceans. Frigate birds were called Man-of-War birds by English mariners and are able to soar for weeks on wind currents.

These pendants were worn around a man's neck to keep him safe in danger and to straighten the aim and strengthen the arm to shoot. They were also by women in the hope of having more children.
