I feel since it does say in the report that it is human.. (even though I wished otherwise)
That, that right there was some serious binding at a young age, and for the head to grow so much faster than the rest of its body is odd, leads me to
believe things like motherly deficiencies as well.
I do understand that it was very cool, very popular, honoring the gods, but boy I would feel top heavy! For people like me born with abnormally large
foreheads anyways, I would look like a literal alien!
I have read other things in my National Geo amongst the wrapping and elongating the head and the neck. For example, laying women down on a mat, no
anistetic, to cut their lips down their in favor of the Gods in a ritualistic manner. I thought when reading that MY goodness, I would run and hide.
Ugh, the things people do for trends!
I believe people physically alter themselves to become more appealing to them or their gods. In this case it was this little boys, big ole' head!!
