ECUADOR DOOM: Vatican Returns Father Carlos Crespi's Shrunken 'Warrior' Head Back To Ecuador!


VATICAN CITY (AFP) - The Vatican museum has returned a shrunken head to Ecuador, relinquishing the wizened cranium of an Amazon warrior nearly 100 years after it was taken by a missionary. The grisly body part - which belonged to the Shuar indigenous people - was handed over during Ecuadorian President Lenin Moreno's visit to Pope Francis on Saturday (Dec 16) after months of negotiations, the Vatican said. It is very rare for a historical artifact to be returned by the Vatican museums, which boast one of the largest collections of art and archaeology in the world. Source
