Neanderthal Figure Model


It's not strictly about dolls, but the description of the latter part of the process sounds like reborning, including silicon casting, detail painting and rooting individual hairs. Scientists at the University of Zurich doing computer-assisted Paleoanthropology are using what sound like programs related to CG animation to fill in the missing parts of fossilized bone fragments to create skulls and then build molds for figures from that. I think it's fascinating.
