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 a gorgeous, light patina. The carvings on this skull are incredibly beautiful. There are also two brass "earrings" which hang from the zygomatic arches. This piece would be a phenomenal focal point of any collection.
