Androgynous Objects explores the way meaning is encoded in material
culture by focusing on the androgynous symbolism of the looped
string bag, or bilum, of the Telefol people of Central New Guinea.
The web of meanings 'woven' into the bag is shown to extend beyond
women's lives and bodies. It is open to manipulation and
reformation in a variety of contexts and is used by both Telefol
women and men to explore, and so explain the complexities and
ambiguities inherent in their social life.
