Got a skull?
The first facial reconstruction Amanda performed in front of the public was at the Smithsonian Folk Life Festival in 2007. Approximately 2.3 million people attended the festival. The two week long demonstration was so popular that she lost her voice on the third day and an intern was assigned to come out and talk for her and the security guards had to come around at closing to ask the audience to leave so she could close up each day. Her interactive approach to the demonstration helped bring the 400 year old story of James Mutton, one of the first settlers to die at Jamestown to life for hundred’s of people under the trees of our Nations Mall.
Although rare, some museums, research institutions and sometimes even individuals are in possession of human remains which can help fill in details in our human story. Call Amanda and find out how a facial reconstruction can benefit your organization or institution while honoring the people from our past.
