What u see its a real human skull. This picture show Dayak performed one of the most sacred ritual, "Ntokong". To performed this ceremony, they must carried out the human skull from their house and other old stuff. Their ancestor fought and win the battle by choped few enemy heads. Its not a fake skull, believes me.
