The shrunken heads are really a piece of art work. Will look forward to seeing the other when finished.

HAaaaaa GREAT!!! I will keep the light on for ya tonight!! Follow the green smoke!!(the other kind!). Side note here is that my story here is that a Jivaro warrior and one of the tribes more creative Tsantsa' trophy makers had an unpleasant encounter with a Suya Native from far East of the Jivaro village. Suya's traditionally wear lip plates..much like the African Natives have.

On a very distant trip, a Jivaro traveled on a sort of spiritual journey along the Amazon river to the territory of the Zuya. Just before dusk one eve, the Jivaro sent a poison blow dart into the trees to down a Monkey it would take as food for the night. A Suya warrior was in the area..saw this and was not happy.... The two fought visciously but the Jivaro won. He took the head of his victim, skinned and boiled it. He preserved it with it in an herb satchel. When finally back to his village a week later, he dried it in a smoke hut, and created small river clay lip plate and ear rings to mimick the dress of the Suya tribesman. A unique Tsantsa' indeed!! It is currently the pride of the entire Jivaro villiage. Now...you too can own the trophy..and share the story in the rum scented eves of your own home hut.

So, there you have this relic of this ageless and exotic tale.... ~THOR

I build a display case for a 30" tall shrunken head and modify it so it will accomondate a 40 inch tall display. What is the size of the base that will hold the bamboo pole to support the head. Thanks Roger
