David,

First of all thank you for taking the time to post your collection and research here for fellow Hongshan enthusiasts to both admire and study. Studying Hongshan Culture can be frustrating with so few reference materials available so it is much appreciated.
The large hole on the bigger shui jin skulls is very interesting. Impressive that they had a method to drill such a large cavity so cleanly. Have you examined the tool marks for any hints of organic material? Perhaps these skulls would have been mounted on a stick for some sort of scepter or staff during a burial ceremony? Hard to imagine what else holes of that size would be for if not for mounting them on something.
