Penguin palaeo-prosthesis

Recommended Posts

Hello together,

I was so lucky to obtain a fossil neurocranium of A penguin (Spheniscus sp.) some time ago.

While this is an interesting piece, it didn´t look like much, so I decided to give it a prosthesis based on a 3d scan of its modern relatives.

Here is the result:

It just blows me away how we can do that nowadays. It really must be a huge boost in bone reconstruction for paleo purposes. As well as for a million other applications.  How did you get the model for the modern skull?

Danke, Tim!

 

I am relly happy with the result, even though the (affordable) low resolution print doesn´t do the amazingly detailed model justice.

As to where I got the model, I asked the kind people at digimorph for permission to use one of theirs, and as it was for private educational use they put it online. There is a lot of different models online on their page anyway.

 

Best Regards,

J
