Over ten years of close study and examination of actual Jivaro shrunken heads have led to finding the techniques and materials to create these unusually realistic hand-crafted pieces of art. Hands down, you will not find ANY shrunken head replicas more realistic than these!
"The Warrior" head features hand sewn eyes, mouth and realistic hair. Though some will vary slightly, with such features as lip plates, all the incredible features in "The Tribesman" can be found with additional hand crafted accessories. We have added carefully applied facial hair, such as eyebrows, eyelashes and beard. Also, tribal clay beads and real parrot feathers. Adornments are inspired by traditional Tsantsa specimens, make this savage piece of art truly spectacular. Displayed on pole w/ wooden base to complete the art piece as pictured.
Each shrunken head is glazed with over 50 translucent layers of natural and synthetic polymers to replicate the preserved leather-like appearance and patinas found on authentic embalmed Shrunken Head's.
Celebrated Hawaiian Tiki artist and former Disney Imagineer , Tom Thordarson, a.k.a. "Thor" and his incredibly talented daughter, Katelyn, have pooled their skills to make this limited series possible.
Shrunken Heads are all handmade and painted by Thor himself. No two heads are ever exactly alike but the level of realism, detail and accessory are always of the highest quality. Actual product may vary slightly from picture.
