Figure 75 is a photograph of an object shaped like a jaw bone. Over most of its surface the object has a coating that is coloured matt white. It has a number of large horizontal holes passing through it. At the ends of the object, where presumably it hinges with the skull, the surface is polished metal. There are also a couple of channels and several holes located on the top surface of the object where the artificial teeth would be fixed.
