Taken during Oxford’s Winter Lights and the torch-light visit to the Pitt Rivers museum, Oxford.

The tag reads, ‘Amulet with carved heads, [male] and [female]. Taken from a dead man’s neck after a punitive expedn. 1918. EGBA. S. NIGERIA. d.d. W. T. Sanders, 1935.

Who needs Hollywood movies when you’ve got the Pitt Rivers on your doorstep? Cropped using Picnik, the new editor attached to Flickr.
