Cranial deformation

Here are some different kinds of Incan cranial deformation in Marcajirca... To shape a skull like this you had to start on young skulls while they were still soft and then bind them with cloth and boards and things. I feel like these skulls would fit under the skin of some of my line drawings. I have an affinity for them. They all look coy in a way that I quite like.... maybe because they've been photographed like members of the Brady Bunch. But aren't they amazing?
