Waru Ieal-Sak translates to 'Turtle Shell Comb'. Combs were mainly carved of wongai wood. This was one of our traditions. The artists carved and designed different shapes, such as turtles, and other sea creatures that formed the handles of these combs that were decorative and used by the women in their hair.
