Two artificially deformed skulls in a burial urn from a looted cemetery Featured Lines and Geoglyphs of Nasca and Pampas de Jumana Print

Two artificially deformed skulls in a burial urn from a looted cemetery

Two artificially deformed skulls in a burial urn from a looted cemetery. Skull deformation was common practice in Pre-Columbian Peru and was produced by tight binding of wooden boards to an infant's soft skull. Whether for aesthetic or religious purposes, it does not seem to have caused any physical problems. The skull on the right has a hole between the eyes. It is uncertain whether that was caused post-mortem or whether it could be a sign of sacrifice. Country of Origin: Peru. Culture: Nazca. Period Date: 100 - 1400 AD, Middle Horizon and Late Intermediate period. Place of origin: South Peru. Credit Line: NJ Saunders
