THE BBB PAGE
(CURRENT BONE BUILDERS' BABIES)
The response to the BBB page has been so wonderful, that we've created an archive for the older photos and created
this page for the more recent submissions. Hopefully this will make the more recent photos easier to find.

The most recently added pictures appear at the bottom of the page.


If you have an articulated skeleton and would like to share it with the universe, please email a picture of it to me at
boneman@xyz.net
and Mary (my accomplice) will add it to the current Bone Builders' Babies Page.

These are of a full skeleton of an Australasian Gannet
(Morus serrator). Bone by bone he has made a
pattern/blueprint such that pieces of card stock are cut out
and folded and glued together to make life-size 3-D bones
which are articulated to make a full skeleton. This is bone
art pushed to being fine art  displayed in a gallery and will
likely be published in a book form at some point. The
photography was done by James Gilberd.
