Land of the Head Hunters

photo : Susan K.Jacobson

I bought this creepy postcard many years back from Sabah.
So happen that I dig all my postcards out and thought of to let go some of precious 
to next postcrossers, and this piece will go to Olga Korzhavina, Russia.

Headhunting used to be a tribal rite in Borneo and skull houses were an essential part 
of traditional life. Skull houses can still be seen these days, but of course the practice of headhunting stopped many years ago.
