Description

The Crô-Magnon skull model is the finest castings produced from scientifically made copies of specimens featured in the collection at the Institute of Anthropology and Human Genetics for Biologists at the Johann-Wolfgang-Goethe University, Frankfurt/Main, Germany. This means that all the details in each anthropological skull can be reproduced absolutely accurately. This Crô-Magnon unique replica is supplemented by having it displayed on a pedestal that contains a relief map of the geographical area where the specimen was found.

This anthropological skull is a wonderful casting of a reconstruction of an early hominid called Crô-Magnon man. The age of the original Crô-Magnon man specimen is dated to be 20,000 to 30,000 years old. The Crô-Magnon skull itself belonged to an early modern human of the species Homo sapiens sapiens from the ice age of the neo-Paleolithic era.
