Are shrunken heads from real people? Just saw it on TV but I dint catch on time are shrunken heads real ? if they are real how the hell do they shrink them make them so small and why do they make them ?
Actually, I believe shrunken heads are real human heads. I understand they boil them and then use animal hide tanning techniques to shrink them down. I'm not sure why primitive tribes do this, but it is possible that they use the heads as tokens of war. Interesting question!
