Apparently, it was very lucrative to sell shrunken human heads in the 19th Century in Latin America.

As a result of huge demand, fake shrunken human heads were made out of animals.

So forgery has been around for many years, and that was no surprise.

But the really tragedy is that innocent people were killed to make shrunken heads!

This Smithsonian video shows DNA analysis revealing that the shrunken head was no male shaman but a female who was likely killed to produce a shrunken head!

Tragic unintended consequences….

I pray that we become more careful with our actions and become more aware of unintended consequences.

PS

This is how shrunken heads are made.
