TREPANNED SKULL
TREPANNED SKULL
This is an early Peruvian example demonstrating two features: 1) The subject survived the surgery for at least several months since there is new bone growth. 2) This is an example of a wrappped skull in which the infant's skull was wrappped to form an oblong shape which was felt to be attractive.

TUMI KNIFE
TUMI KNIFE
This early Peruvian knife was used to do trepan surgery. Of interest are the images of the God of land (the puma) and of the underworld, the snake. Further the snakes are intertwined as is the case in the European symbol of medicine, the staff of Aesculapius.
