The other unusual thing is that Hongshan skulls normally seem to come as a stand alone piece.

Sometimes one will encounter an appendage on the top of the skull but very rarely, in my experience, will one find a skull positioned on top of another piece.

In other words, the base of the skull is usually clear. The only exception I have seen is the 2nd piece you have shown where the skull is attached to a body.

This clear skull base would tend to support Andrew's idea that the skull may have been mounted onto a stick or, maybe a finger, for ceremonial purposes.
