Old Peru" is a lifelike shrunken head with mohair that will definitely get noticed as it hangs around your home or office. As a wartime artifact of the past for warning tribal enemies living in the Amazon forests, shrunken heads are known for their mandibular prognathism, facial distortion and shrinkage of the lateral sides of the forehead; these are artifacts of the shrinking process. The practice of preparing shrunken heads originally had religious significance; shrinking the head of an enemy was believed to harness the spirit of that enemy and compel him to serve the shrinker. It was said to prevent the soul from avenging his death.

1) The hair fibers on Old Peru are locks of soft silky mohair from an Angora goat. The range in hair color is natural and not dyed. It gives this design an authentic look with high luster and sheen, and will not felt as wool does over time. The hair also act as a bath shower scrubby when using it as a bar of soap.

2) The stitching of Old Peru's lips will hold back the calls to the spirits. They are made of natural, polished, undyed hemp yarn or linen cord. The non toxic hard wood beads are from CZech Republic, made from maple beech or hornbeam.

3) A thicker natural hemp rope will keep Old Peru high and dry when not in use.

4) Old Peru is packaged in a 10" cotton fabric that has a double-fold hem on all four sides, that also serves as a wash cloth. The corners are held together with a hand stitch of hemp yarn. As shown in the photo.

5) The packaged item weighs 10 ounces. Because of our unique and extensive hand-made process, each bar may vary slightly in color and edge detail. Please allow 5 days to make it and ship it. Thank you!
