In battle, the warriors of the tribe took away the enemy’s head and then reduced to the spirit of the latter could not come back and take revenge on the person responsible for his death.
But then, for religious purposes, members reduced Suhar head
of the wisest of the group in order to keep their knowledge and keep your spirit in the trib
So we can say that the purpose of this ritual was to keep the knowledge in the village.Whether to prevent possible revenge from beyond the grave by their enemies or, conversely, to keep close to the deceased group, in both cases,
to reduce the village head made sure to keep the spirit of the person.
In both cases, knowledge was kept as staying with the shrunken head of the enemy also stayed with their knowledge. Another key was the prestige, the more heads had a warrior, more prestige involved had since I was a victorious
Finally, the heads also worked on a psychological level, because this represents a psychological impact for anyone outside the tribe Suhar.
