This is an African skull, it has come from the Benin region of Africa and has been used in the practice of vodun. it is common for practitioners to put a human skull on an altar in the home dedicated to spirits of the dead known as gede. The spirits contained in that skull are thought to have a powerful, positive influence on one's life.The belief is that the spirits of those people will help you in life, will do things for you.
Vodun is an ancient religion practiced by some 30 million people in the West African nations of Benin, Togo and Ghana. With its countless deities, animal sacrifice and spirit possession, voodoo as it's known to the rest of the world is one of the most misunderstood religions on the globe.
The skull has wax still has wax on it that adds to its history and character.

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.
