This is an asmat tribe skull from the Cassuarina- coast/ Southern Irian Jaya Province. The asmat tribes were known to eat their enemy.
The lateral hole with great patina on its edges of opening, proves that the hole was not produced later on but when the head was taken. part of the brain had been extracted in order to nourish the tribe with the « intelligence, power- manna » of the fallen person. This piece Was purchased in Germany 30 years ago and has been in a private collection since.

All the remains I sell are over 100 years old for the law, ethically sourced and respect of the living friends and relatives, I would never sell any remains with a known name as this may upset the living and that is in my opinion disrespectful. If someone is disrespected with no link to a random skull then that is their opinion and in my mind not disrespectful.
