Ideas for displaying elk vertebrae

Recommended Posts

Fossil Claw

I have some fossil elk vertebrae and I would like to display them upright.

 

Any suggestions for stands that can hold these in a stable way?

Thanks

Are they articulated or all separate?

I would string them together and wear them as a necklace, you would be the talk of the town at the Elk’s Club. :)

You could make a frame out plywood that holds the verts in an articulated pose. You could cut out cardboard to prototype the shape to get it just right.

7 separate verts.

So they won't exactly fit together in an articulated pose?  What about placing them in a sunburst pattern similar to points of a clock?

Here is a link to my old post. The display type employed for the chevrons might meet your needs. Good luck, have fun.
