We are fascinated by shrunken heads here at RIP.
An amazing mentor of mine taught me this technique and we have spent months refining and tweaking the process of this traditional method.
Shrunken heads are a practice specific to communities within the Amazon forest. The only tribes that were known to have shrunken heads were the Jivaroan tribes that were found in Ecuador and Peru.
Shrinking the head of an enemy was believed to harness the spirit of that enemy and compel him to serve the shrinker! It is said to prevent the soul from avenging its death.
This is our take on this incredible process in the form of a puppy head.
The dome is 3 inches in diameter and 4 inches high.
Plaque reads "Canis lupus familiaris minima" which is the puppy's Latin name, with a tongue in cheek "minima" added for its shrunken status.
