Why this is a
Masterpiece

The projection of the Lingling-O ear pendants appears to have been derived from the stylized bud design resulting in a simple point with a concave side. Another type of Lingling -O is the double-headed pendant found in the Duyong Cave. This is the most distinctive jade ornament with zoomorphic design; and a superb and beautifully proportioned example of an ancient carving in jade.

History of the Object
The Lingling-O is the diagnostic ornament of the Early Metal Age in Palawan. Several ear pendants were found in Uyaw, Rito-Fabian and Duyong Caves in Palawan by Dr. Robert Fox, former anthropologist of the NM in the 1960s. These distinctive ear pendants appeared for the first time in the Early Metal Age. In the later periods, archaeological records reveal that the pendants were duplicated in stone and shell. The ear pendants are on display at the Luxury Goods Section of the Pinagmulan Gallery, Museum of the Filipino People.
