AN IFUGAO HOUSE The Ifugao houses are raised from the ground by posts having projecting shoulders designed to prevent rats and other small animals from gaining entrance. Till a few years ago the Ifugao were persistent head hunters and the skulls thus obtained form, to this day, a prominent feature of house decoration. Sometimes they areused to form a frieze and at others they are enclosed in open-work baskets dependent from the eaves. Each house has two rooms,aliving room and astoreroom, the latter situated in the roof.
