A digital sculpture of an Archaeopteryx lithographica skull that I made.
Much of the proportions are based on the Peter Wellnhofer reconstruction from his book Archaeopteryx: The Icon of Evolution. When looking at the CT scans of the London specimen brain case however I found that the back of the skull wasn’t entirely correct. Other proportions and details are based on the skulls of the Eichstatt, Thermopolis and Munich specimens. So it should be fairly accurate. But since all known specimens are flattened there is still a degree of interpretation involved with reconstructing the 3D shape.
