Cast Replica Human Skull (African-American female) - Homo sapiens #BC-178

-Size: 8"L x 5"W x 7"H

-Species: Homo sapiens (“Wise Man”)

-Notes: This is an excellent example of an African American female skull. Features suggestive of African-American ancestry are the moderate alveolar prognathism, flat nasal region (including the nasal root), broad nasal aperture, retreating zygoma, somewhat truncated nasal spine, and retreating forehead. Although African-American nasal fossae are typically known for their absence of a nasal sill, and the existence of a nasal gutter, this particular individual lacked those features (a finding in keeping with the fact that human morphology exists across a spectrum, and one individual rarely demonstrates features of only one particular category of race or sex).
