Description

This antique kapala originally came form the Chin peoples of Burma, who migrated to Burma in approximately the late ninth century. The earliest evidence of shamanistic bon po rituals in that area also date to that period. This is an antique kapala that has seen a lot of use as a mortar. The inside has a deep depression from grinding. The outside is polished from being handled. Because they are cut from the crown of the skull, this type of kapala is typically 4 to 4 1/2″ in size.

Pictures of other Bonpo kapalas are available upon request
