Today we are offering an eerily life-like carved wood human skull! This piece is so cool! Expertly hand carved with amazing attention to detail, this skull is about the size of a child or very small person. The life-like details are quite impressive, with incised cranium lines and deep recessed eye sockets. The teeth are carved of what appears to be bone and look just like real teeth! The lower mandible jaw moves up and down slightly. The skull even has the foramen magnun just like a real skull. This piece will make a great gift to a doctor or medical student, but would also be awesome for a scary and fun Halloween or macabre medical prop. In very good vintage condition, with minor wear and patina. A little wood piece that forms the gum between two upper right teeth is missing. Our consignor’s grandfather (who was a doctor) bought this skull back during a trip through Asia back in the day, and we believe this piece is of most likely Indonesian origin though no one is certain. An unique conversation piece that is ready to be displayed in your home or business. Fresh to the market!
Dimensions: approximately 6 1/2″ in depth, 4 3/4″ in width, and 5 3/8″ in height
