Description

This is a screenshot from the Still (STL) 3D image software rendering of an Ancient Egyptian skull collected by Samuel G. Morton. This is one of twelve skulls Morton deemed "typical skulls." These twelve skulls were made into plaster casts and donated to the Warren Anatomical Museum in 1848. The screenshot captures the finalized 3D animation of the Ancient Egyptian's skull. The finalized 3D animation was sent off to create 3D prints with PLA plastic. The 3D prints can be found in the Beyond the Bone Box educational kits curated by Warren Anatomical Museum.
