Title:
Sinanthropus (female representative of the species Homo erectus)
Reconstruction date:
1939
Material:
plaster
Description:
The female cranium, like that of the male, was reconstructed using the casts of small fragments of crania of various individuals and a cast of an entire skullcap. Therefore in this case too the reconstruction is very approximate. The face is less robust and closer to the modern human type than that of the male. Nevertheless is it likewise archaic with sloping forehead, supraorbital torus, protruding jaws, and absence of chin.
