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

    U had niets vermeld van een afgebroken arm?? Ik vraag u wat voor u een goede oplossing zou zijn en u reageert niet meer, beetje flauw om nu zo een feedback te geven.

    mooi beeld, een klein stukje van de duim af van een hand, maar was op de foto's van de ad te zien, beter om ook in text te zetten. Verkoper reageert snel op vragen per mail en is zeer behulpzaam.

    Protection very insufficient, several corners of the panels were damaged. Why do not you protect your shipped items ?!

    De aankoop is al bijna 1 maand geleden. De aankoop bracht maar 1 euro op maar werd desondanks goed verpakt. Had u eerder iets laten weten was een schadevergoeding mogelijk. mvg frederique

    Mooie tas, gebruik wel goed zichtbaar op bodem. Helaas stinkt de tas enorm naar rook. Als cadeau is dit wel teleurstellend.

    Beste,

    U heb helemaal geen mail gestuurd + geen bericht via het catawiki platform en kiala moet onderling geregeld worden NIET via catawiki. Eerst goed lezen hoe catawiki werkt.
