For those who like the hominid skulls in my home

Visitors to my home frequently remark on the life-size reproductions of fossil hominid skulls I have in my living room and office. For those who are curious, most of them are from Bone Clones. The ones in my living room are:

Australopithecus aethiopicus (aka Paranthropus aethiopicus) ("the Black Skull") skull only KNM-WT (pictured above)

Australopithecus boisei (aka Paranthropus boisei) skull only OH 5 (Zinjanthropus -- Nutcracker Man)

Homo erectus skull and jaws BH-005 -- Peking Man

Homo neanderthalensis skull and jaws BH-015 - La Chapelle-aux-Saints -- Neanderthal Man

I had no idea these could be purchased! Back when I was taking anthropology classes I always wanted to have a couple of these.

Thanks for posting this link.
