This is a highly detailed replica of an Amazonian Tsantsa or shrunken head. Warring tribes would cut off their victims heads, remove the skin and shrink it down to the size of a grapefruit.Sewing the mouths, eyes and back of the heads closed. They would then wear them of hang them in their huts. Each head I make completely by hand and no one is the same. So like real heads they are unique indevidual characters. The heads are lightweight but durable, hollow and eyes, mouth and nostrils are open. The head is hollow and sewn up the back as real heads are. I try to make my heads as realistic as possible while keeping the price down.
Each head takes roughly a week to make, has real jute twine and wooden bead decoration. Real peacock feathers and quality synthetic hair that is long and not unrealistcally soft.Suitable for display under any light. A worthy addition to any curiosity cabinet and a conversation starter. Grab him while you can.
