JENNIFER MANN SCULPTOR
Forensic Facial Reconstruction
I studied forensic facial reconstruction sculpture in 2014, 2016 and 2018 under Karen T. Taylor, a leading expert in the USA. The training was provided at the Forensic Anthropology Centre at Texas State University, and involved learning how to recreate a facial approximation of a person in life from a skull. This required intense study of facial anatomy which is also important to the practice of portrait sculpting. The skills that I developed during this highly specialised training are used in the areas of forensic crime and historical cases. I currently hold the position of Forensic Sculptor at the Victorian Institute of Forensic Medicine.
The 'Meritamun' Project
In 2016, I completed a facial reconstruction sculpture of an ancient Egyptian mummy for the University of Melbourne. The completed reconstruction, along with a 3D print of the skull and the actual ancient mummified head, are on permanent display in the Harry Brookes Allen Museum of Anatomy and Pathology at the University of Melbourne.
