Two words that when used together are a sure bet to attract attention.
Few cultural icons garner as much fascination as Shrunken Heads. Like the two opposite poles of a magnet, they both attract us and repel us at the same time.
In their strange aspect we see ourselves: we see the savagery we are capable of as well as our ingenuity. They reflect both the depths of human cruelty and extent to which spirituality and superstition dominate the human experience. While people the world over are familiar with Shrunken Heads, most know very little about them: how they are made, and more importantly, why. And, even though the practice has been long outlawed in every corner of the world, they still endure: woven deeply into the our collective consciousness of things hideous and taboo
The Real Shrunken Head™ products are authentic reproductions of real shrunken heads produced in the traditional practices unique to specific cultures around the world. We have made every effort to capture authenticity and the complete experience of each distinct culture represented with each shrunken head series.
(While we in no way condone the practice of human mutilation in our modern, large scale societies, we cannot ignore the importance of such rituals to some tribal cultures: both recent and in ages past. Head shrinking is part of the human experience and like all cultural practices, bears understanding.)
