Shrunken heads are ceremonial artifacts that were created by the Jivaroan Indian cultures of Ecuador and Peru. They are human heads that have been reduced to the size of a closed fist, using a process that is not found in any other region of the world. This book contains beautiful, full-page portraits of more than 40 shrunken heads, and discusses the Shuar (Jívaro) culture. Written by Dr. James L. Castner
