Shrunken Head

Authentic Shrunken Heads

The origin of one of our most iconic exhibits dates back to the early 1920s, when Robert Ripley acquired a shrunken head from a trader in Panama City and kickstarted his collection of unusual objects from around the world. Today, there are more than 100 authentic shrunken heads, or tsantsa, in the Ripley’s collection.
