This bizarre and ornate human skull was decorated in the style of the Asmat peoples of New Guinea!
While they are famous for their headhunting, this particular item is not meant to depict a trophy skull. It is a moderb artistic rendition of an "Ancestor Skull" - the skull of a deceased relative, exhumed in an effort to strengthen their spiritual connection and call forth spiritual guidance and protection.
This item is a composite of a real Indonesian skull and decorations crafted/collected by the Asmat but the skull itself was decorated as an art piece by Ari Flagle in the United States.
We can ship this specimen worldwide.
