Skull reconstruction. Forensic scientist using wax and a wire frame to reassemble the remains of a human skull. Skulls are rebuilt to provide a base for facial reconstruction when there is no other means of identifying skeletal remains. The aim is to provide a likeness of the victim, which might allow them to be identified from missing persons records for example. The face may be reconstructed with modelling clay or digitally by computer.
Model release available. Property release not required.
