The Dayak are a headhunting tribe from Borneo of Indonesia. They are well known for their carved "Trophy Skulls," which were taken from their enemies. These skulls were used to denote the status of warriors and their families in their community. They would often symbolize valorous deeds, wealth, and social status.

 

This carved Dayak Trophy Skull is in excellent condition with an incredibly beautiful, deep patina. This specimen has rattan lashings that wrap around the mandible and through the nasal cavity. Impressive carvings cover the top of the skull. A fascinating piece that would make a spectacular addition to any collection.
