A very rare and authentic carved wood panel of a Naga Konyak warrior chief. The image of the chief with a spear symbolizes the strength of the village and individual accomplishments. Nagaland is home to some of the world’s last surviving headhunters. They are known as fierce warriors who often attacked other nearby villages, taking the heads of opposing warriors as trophies to declare their victory. The Naga or Konyak tribal people of the northwest border area of India and Burma still exhibit very strong warrior traditions of bringing back the severed heads of their enemies after a conflict and storing them in the skull houses (Baan) each village or tribe had. Each man in the tribe was expected to contribute to the skull collection. Wonderful art display piece with symbolic history and tradition.
