The australopithecines are only known from Africa and are believed to be the earliest true hominids. None has ever been found in Europe or Asia. They had ape-sized brains; their cranial capacity ranged from 375 to 530cm3. The cranial capacity of Australopithecus afarensis had a similar range. They had strong jaws with large teeth. Like modern gorillas, the adult males were much larger than the females. The babies probably took approximately the same length of time to grow up as a modern chimpanzee or gorilla. This full size skull was sculpted for Bone Clones by scientific sculptor Steven Wagner.

Our aim is to provide the best possible facsimile models of the most important hominid finds for the general public, educators and students, using the best reference material available. Each hominid has been carefully researched and re-created based on some or all of the following: casts of original fossils, the latest literature (descriptions and/or published measurements), input from the scientific community and full color, life-size photographs. Every effort has been made to accurately re-create anatomical details of color, size, shape, reconstructed areas, and bone/fossil texture. The hominids offered in this series are high quality, artistic recreations that can be advantageously used by educators as important visual aids in the classroom and appreciated by the general public. They are not intended for advanced graduate work nor to be measured for research purposes.
