|A very unusual non-ceremonial human shrunken head with a cord inserted through the nose.||A fabulously decorated tsantsa with authentic adornments but attached in non-traditional areas of the head.||A rare ceremonial tsantsa still retaining the sharpened chonta wood pegs that were used to secure the lips shut.|
