We are proud to present this magnificent and incredibly rare skull of an adult male Woolly Mammoth from the Pleistocene era. The Siberian skull with fantastic tusks has been professionally and beautifully reconstructed with an upper jaw found in the North Sea, which was missing in the original skull. The alveoli (containing the tusks) are reconstructions made of Replicast: see the coloured chart illustrating the different parts of the restoration.

The result is an absolutely stunning skull with enormous tusks. This would have belonged to an adult alpha male Mammoth. Many anatomical details in fantastic state of preservation, and the tusks with beautiful colouring, mostly of black, grey, white and brown ivory. This piece is truly of museum quality and highly recommended. Intricate and large fossils such as this are very rare due to their fragility. Once in a lifetime opportunity.

This piece is presented on a custom-made acrylic plexiglass stand and is ready to be displayed. Much more beautiful than the images can convey and also a wonderful conversation piece. A work of art in its own right!

The skull and tusks have been legally exported from Russia.
