Australopithecus africanus Sts 52
BH-036 $249.00

2.3-2.8 MYA. Discovered by J.T. Robinson, in Sterkfontein, South Africa in 1949. The association of Sts 52a and Sts 52b seems reasonable based on the wear patterns and occlusion of the dentition. Sts 52a, which appears to be compressed laterally, represents part of the lower face. It possesses long, thin nasal bones, a relatively sharp lateral margin of the nasal aperture, a moderately long palate, which also may have been moderately wide (before compression), and an intraorbital region that was likely not very broad. Most of the teeth in the maxilla, while slightly cracked, are relatively unworn. M3 is not completely erupted. The small mandible, 52b, is distorted, particularly on the right side. The molars of the mandible show the criss-crossed pattern common to the Taung specimen.

The Bone Clones® Fossil 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). A small portion of the fossil hominid line has been cast from original material. 

2-part skull (separate cranium & jaw).

Custom display stand available below.
