The La Chapelle-aux-Saints skull model is the finest casting 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 unique La Chapelle-aux-Saints replica is supplemented by having it displayed on a pedestal that contains a relief map of the geographical area where the specimen was found.

Cast from a reconstruction of the La Chapelle-aux-Saints skull, the model skull is an accurate replica of one belonging to a 50-55 year old male Neanderthal from ancient Europe of the species Homo (sapiens) neanderthalensis. Early man.
