Shrunken heads are becoming a popular topic in today’s oddities business. More and more people are seeking them for purchase. Without a doubt, a head would make a great addition to a collection of curiosities. However, if you’re looking for a real shrunken head, finding it is not so easy. This doesn’t mean they are not out there. You just have to look hard to find one.
In this post, we will talk about their up and coming industry and history. We will go into the details of how they were made in the past. Our featured image shows a man by the name of Horatio Gordon Robley. He is sitting proud with his large collection of severed and preserved heads back in 1895. Robley was an artist and collector of Mokomokai (preserved heads of Māori people). Although the heads are severed and not shrunk, we thought we would share this amazing image with you. Of course, to many, the picture can be extremely creepy and very difficult to look at.
