Pastels on Mi Teintes paper A3
This man from Longwa village, Myanmar, on the North East border of India, is a headhunter. The tattoos on his face and body denote a large number of human heads that he has taken over a lifetime of head hunting….. a practice that disappeared in the early 1980’s.
His face is also adored with animal horn ear rings.
