Large lot of shrunken heads I sold several years ago. This group of heads paid for a much larger collection (the only reason I would ever justify selling these). The shrunkee with the red earrings was very interesting and peculiar. Most heads are cut and sewn up the back. This is how the skin is removed from the skull. This particular one had no cut at all! How did they get the skull out??? Very mysterious. #oddities #shrunkenhead #shrunkenheads #tsantsa #anatomy #anatomical #mummified #mummification #museumcollection #tribalartifacts #medicalhistory #medicalantiques

SURPRISE, not one, but two new house guests <3 <3! I’ll get some better/full shots of these guys in the morning ;w;

As a thank you to my friend for finding the lot and being willing to split the cost with me, I’m going to do some restoration her hyena pelt. So there’s gonna be two ‘yenas invading the Jackal home for a bit c:
