Homo erectus Skull - Tattersall-Sawyer Recreation BH-038
300,000 to 600,000 YA. The Homo erectus skull Peking Man is also known as Pithecanthropus pekinensis (Sinanthropus). The reproduction offered here was recreated by Ian Tattersall and Gary J. Sawyer using original casts when possible. Their reproduction clearly indicates the areas that were sculpted and which were based on original fragments. The dark colors represent the areas that were created using casts from original material (from multiple specimens). Licensed exclusively to Bone Clones, we are grateful to Tattersall and Sawyer for permitting us to cast this remarkable piece. The Bone Clones® Hominid line is composed of discoveries from anatomically modern humans, archaic humans, early Homo, early hominins, and other hominids. The majority of the casts in this line have been recreated by our team of anatomical sculptors. Some are reconstructions made by anthropology professionals using fragmentary elements from original discoveries and extrapolating the missing parts from those (i.e. Neanderthal skeleton). A small portion of the hominin line has been cast from original material. 2-part skull (separate cranium & jaw).
