This is a very unusual sacrum in that it has six sacral segments instead of the usual five. It comes from a very large male specimen (the skeleton stood over 6'4" tall) and there is extreme scoliosis distortion evident in the way that it is sidebent to the specimen's right side. The median sacral crest is enormous indicating extreme muscular development. From the osseous development, here is speculation that the specimen was either a laborer or an athlete. It has been determined by the facial features of the skeleton that the specimen was of Asian decent. There are five sacral foramina on each side instead of the usual four. This sacrum has the sacral nerve canal fully open the entire length. Most sacrum models are plugged here as it is much more difficult to do the molding process for a long internal cavity. This sacrum has been made especially for us as we felt it was imperative to have this important anatomical landmark realistically portrayed. The matching cranium from this skeleton is available on our website (BC-092).
