In what is now the Ica Region of Peru, these peoples practiced cranial modification (cradle-boarding) on their infants to create abnormal skull development. This would typically be done between 1-6 months after birth when the human skull is most pliable.
According to their superstitions and religion, they believed that the altering of a child's head would denote higher status in society, a better connection with the spirit world or that it would enhance the function of the brain.
