"Lucy" Skeleton, Articulated Walking
SC-036-AW $7,250.00

(Stand and Base Included)

3.2 MYA. The Australopithecus afarensis Skeleton "Lucy" (A.L. 288-1) was discovered by Donald Johanson in 1974 in Hadar, Ethiopia. Characteristics of the skeleton suggest that this species both walked upright and spent time in the trees. We reconstructed the articulated skeleton by using bones from the disarticulated version, which were based on the original find. By extrapolating from several sources, we created brass parts to indicate missing skeletal elements. Note that the arms and legs of the articulated skeleton in the walking position are rigid and fixed. The Bone Clones® Hominid line is composed of discoveries from anatomically modern humans, archaic humans, early Homo, early hominins, and other hominids. The majority of the casts in this line have been recreated by our team of anatomical sculptors. Some are reconstructions made by anthropology professionals using fragmentary elements from original discoveries and extrapolating the missing parts from those (i.e. Neanderthal skeleton).

See the "Lucy" Group Page for other articulation options and individual bones.
