Sumario: Although rituals concerning the decoration of the body as a cannibalistic ritual might go unnoticed by the Eurocentric viewer because they do not have the capacity to observe in them neither practices of etiquette nor uses of a collective symbolism, they are valuable when you look in detail at the inscriptions of the body.
