Bone Clones ® is a series of resin replica skulls, skillfully cast from the best original skulls available. Made of the highest quality Polyurethane resin, the replicas are durable and resistant to chipping, breakage and shattering. Great care is taken to achieve anatomical accuracy, with attention to details of appearance, texture and weight.
Bone Clones ® skulls are used in comparative educational environments in zoo and museum "experience" exhibits, by collectors and special effects companies in numerous film productions. Bone Clones ® replicas are an excellent way for us to experience, observe, study and "discourage" the use of real skulls.
The thought pattern behind the Bone Clones ® replication process, we feel, protects and preserves the beauty of the animals depicted; their uniqueness, their mystery and their strength which, in many cases, would have otherwise been lost to time.
Bone Clones is especially proud to be a part of an ongoing process to reproduce all of the primates that were tragically lost in the fire of 1996 at the Philadelphia Zoo. We have begun with the complete skeleton of the large male Gorilla. We have also completed the skull of a female gorilla. A portion of the sales goes to the Philadelphia Zoo to help rebuild and research. Other primates are also available. Please contact us or check our website.
