The skull of an ancestor, Papua New Guinea. Probably, the ancestor's brain was taken out and eaten. The skull was treasured and treated with utmost respect: the Papuan  men always carried the skull with him in order to keep in touch with the ancestor. Even when he slept the skull was used as a headrest.
