This beautifully adorned human skull was decorated by Asmat peoples! While headhunting is one of their historical practices, this particular item is not a trophy skull. It is a contemporary 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 skull consensually entered the market as a trade item in the 1900s. It would make an incredible addition to any reference or ethnographic collection!

We can ship this skull worldwide.

**Please note: We do not take the ownership of human remains lightly, and neither should you. These are not "oddities", they were once living people and deserve to be treated with respect and appreciation for what they are and who they were. We have the right to refuse sales to anyone, or any organization, we suspect would not honour these specimens with the dignity they deserve.**
