Good condition. This is not a real human head, but a reproduction made of goat skin. This kind of heads was made by Jivaro Indians.

A shrunken is a severed and specially prepared human head, which usually serves as a trophy or is used for ritual purposes.
The best known shrunken heads were made by the indigenous people of Melanesia and the Amazon basin. The only known Amazon people who are still in possession of shrunken heads are the Shuar, Achuar, Huambisa and Aguaruna.

The head comes in a wooden box. Total height: 13 cm; height of the head: 10 cm.
This is not a real human head, but a reproduction made of goat skin. This kind of heads was made by Jivaro Indians.

Will be sent by registered mail.

    Er wel degelijk vermeld dat die riem niet origineel is en dat deze uit kunststof bestond. De koper is gewoon kwaad omdat hij een korting eiste op de verzending maar de verzending is voor iedereen. ook heeft hij de tas kunnen kopen voor 7 euro, belachelijke feedback dus
