This is a cast of a Peruvian elongated skull! This was cast from an incredible specimen that dates back to 800-100BCE! 

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. 

It is believed that the altering of a child's head could be to denote higher status in a society or follow pseudoscientific beliefs that it would enhance the function of the brain.
