Springwatch: Norfolk man's animal skeleton sculptures


Ben Garrod, 29, from Great Yarmouth is studying for a PhD in primate evolution. He also makes sculptures from the bones of animals, recreating traditional methods of studying natural history.

"The whole reason I do them is because it was once a popular way of understanding wildlife - a mixture of art and science. It was very Victorian. But with the advent of computers and technology the art form has died out.

"I''ve taken some of the skeletons into schools around Norfolk and the children love them, it's just the adults that find them a bit morbid."

Mr Garrod featured in Springwatch Unsprung on Wednesday 1 June.
