& REVEALING NATURE’S HIDDEN BEAUTY
one impeccably cleaned bone at a time
A THOROUGH CLEANING
with a little help from my (beetle) friends
Here skulls and skeletons are cleaned as a collaborative effort between myself and my very hungry legions of flesh-eating Dermestid beetles. Their larvae can get into the smallest gaps in bone for an incredibly thorough cleaning with no damage done to even delicate bones.
MEANT TO LAST
Cleaning is only the first step to a skull that will last a lifetime and then some. A careful process is used to remove the grease – naturally occurring fats and oils – from the bone. If left behind, they will cause discoloration and odors. A safe chemical process then sanitizes, deodorizes and whitens the bone.
