Many strangely "deformed" hominoid skulls have been discovered in Mexico and Peru. Other such skulls have been found around the globe. The first thing that attracts attention is the size and shape of the cranium in all the specimens.
The majority of people assumed that they represented an example of binding of the head, well known to be in fashion in ancient Nubia, Egypt and other cultures. But anthropologists have admitted that the shapes of the Peruvian skulls is unlike the deformity caused by binding.
The data about the skulls is incomplete, and that makes the correct assessment of their age, context with other hominids, as well as placement of their origin extremely difficult. Some of the skulls are very distinct, as if they belong to entirely different species, remotely similar to genus Homo.
These strangely shaped heads can be found in the works of many artist all over the world.
Is this shape a part of our collective unconcious mind?
