Ceramic figures that hid bones were bound for shelves

BROOK PARK, Ohio -- Human skulls encased in ceramic have been found among clay pots, baseballs and other items purchased at auction by an Ohio discount store chain.

The trail of the 12 skulls has led to Florida and Peru.

A warehouse employee of the Marc's chain found them while looking through a box purchased at auction Jan. 15 in Fort Lauderdale, Fla. A figurine fell and broke, revealing a skull enshrouded in the ceramic.

Could the skulls possibly be artifacts that an archeologist was shipping to another collegue for study? I couldn't really tell what the article meant by saying the skulls were old and dried out.

It is not that hard to obtain skulls if you need them for the right purposes. I have examined many skulls and skeletons while going through school. These skulls could have been from a university. In the past Doctors would often have complete skeletons or parts of skeletons in there offices. Nowadays plastic replicas are used.

My point is they could have come from many places and hopefully are not the result of a crime.

I believe I read a differently reported version of this story... didn't the purchaser of the skulls believe them to be ceramic replicas, to be sold as curiosities?

Right you are. Just having some skulls does not make you a criminal. Could be from anyplace. You can even by them online.

Definitely possible that they were encased in ceramic in order to preseve them for study.

On the more gruesome side, it sounds like one of those late night horror movies I saw where the artist used real people under his sculptures.
