The sale of any parts of a human skeleton can be an emotive

subject, and quite rightly so as, after all, they are human

remains, with emphasis being placed on the word human. When it

comes to a real human skull » , then you also start to get

more personal. The skull holds a morbid curiosity in a way that

a flesh-covered cadaver can’t. Where all other bones in the

human body are relatively unremarkable, the skull encapsulates

and differentiates the human form and is easily recognizable.

Place any bone other than the skull on a table and ask someone

to say whether it is a human or animal bone, and unless they

are a qualified osteopath or other medical practitioner,

chances are they will be guessing.

The skull also has an almost mythical presence, a combination

of fantasy and reality wrapped up in one. A [real human skull]

[2] for sale is not like any other commodity. It once contained

the brain of someone, its sockets contained that person’s eyes,

it’s mandibles the mouth through which that person spoke. The

problem is, and particularly with older skulls, you can only

guess at what that person thought about, what they saw and what

they said. That is the catch, another clue to why a real human

skull has so much more appeal than a human skull model.

As for those who use real human skulls » in their daily

lives, the major proportion belongs to the scientific

community. Of huge interest to anthropologists, archaeologists,

skulls are also giving up even more secrets as science

advances. Today it is possible to extract DNA from bodies, and

especially teeth, such as a 5,000-year-old skeleton » . The

majority of skulls used in scientific research are discovered

as opposed to bought, but many of the scientists have real

human skulls at home as a legacy of earlier skull anatomy

studies, skulls they bought themselves.

For artists and writers alike, a real human skull or human

skeleton can be a huge source of inspiration. Many crime

writers like to provide intricate details on human anatomy;

artists derive inspiration from reality and mystery. Damien

Hurst’s diamond-encrusted skull, For the Love of God, which

sold for US$100 million » was inspired by bejeweled Aztec

skulls.

As with people who collect stamps or coins, so others collect

skulls, and it helps if you know [where to buy real human

skulls][6]. One of the largest private collections of skulls

belongs to the American, Ryan Cohn, which contains over 200

specimens. There again, there are others who, when they see a

real human skull for sale » , will impulse buy on the basis

that if nothing else, they are buying a great conversation

piece. A real skull offers so much more that a skull replica

can’t.

If you are now thinking you would like to [buy a real human

skull][8] , then your next question is probably going to be

“How much?” followed by “Where?”. Depending on the type of

skull you are looking for, you can pay anywhere between a few

hundred dollars to a few thousand. Surprisingly, despite their

rarity as items for sale, real human skulls are not as

expensive as you might have imagined. As for where you can find

one, well ask any collector and they will tell you they can be

found in the most bizarre of places. However, if you don’t want

to spend the next six months scouring the classified ads or

local yard sales, you can also buy real human skulls »

online from businesses such as The Copper Hammer » , which

carries a very unique assortment human skulls, bones, and

skeletons.
