Object Description

Object History


Object Literature

Although some may find selling human bones unethical it is completely legal providing the specimen is antique and not displayed in a public environment without a license, rather only privately.

Many tales to tell, remaining untold.

Object Condition

The skull remains in good overall order; please view the photographs for a full visual reference. Most of the missing teeth were lost ante-mortem, with possibly some that were lost post-mortem. It has been spray painted gold at some stage to the inner cavity.
