Description:
This Ecuadorian Shrunken Head is from the jungles of South America. The headhunters from this region believed that the soul lived inside the head. Therefore, by possessing an enemy's head, a warrior would also possess the deceased's spiritual power. Shrunken heads were used for trade purposes as well. For example, one shrunken head would be traded for one musket. A rare white man's shrunken head would be worth at least 2 muskets. These trophies were prepared in a slow process of boiling and heating with hot sand and stones. Don't miss this rare chance to own the ultimate in exotica.
