-Notes: 1:2 scale casts of 7 primate skulls provide an overview of speciation and evolution. These wonderfully detailed miniatures were sculpted by Steve Wagner. Portable, durable and precise, this is a great set for quick and easy primate and hominid comparison. Each skull comes with its own identification card, attached by a cord, as well as additional printed reference material. These 1:2 scale skulls are also available individually. We also carry individual full-size companion skulls for most of the smaller versions offered here.
Reduced scale models decrease the overall height, width and depth of the model in the same proportion compared to the original. Please allow up to 1 week for processing time with cast replicas as most of these items are made to order. Thank you for your understanding.
