These are Naga head trophies. The Naga are term referring to a conglomeration of ethnicities and tribes indigenous to north-eastern India and north-western Burma. In older times, before the intrusion of more modern values and ideas, they practiced headhunting and saw the skulls of enemies as trophies, carrying significance and status. They embellished the skulls into intricate pieces of art, as seen in these photographies.
