Replica Fetal Skulls - one with elongated cranium - - - - 11×10×7 cm - 2
1996 - Netherlands

Up for auction 2 replicas of a children's foetus skull.

One involves an exact copy of a normal skull.

The other is a copy of a skull with an abnormality called an elongated skull.
The current science claims that this is due to the old custom of binding the heads of babies tightly. Probably the use of the tied-off children's heads, which did exist in some cultures, was due to the admiration the population had for their alien visitors, who had long heads. They mimicked them, hoping to become like them. This behaviour is seen all over the world

Two beautiful items, both made of plaster and both of which are very realistic!

9x6.7x7.3cm weight 229g
