Bigfoot Bones: Sasquatch Skeleton Analyzed and Compared to Human

Illustration by Guy Edwards, back when Hominidae were Pongidae
The picture above was illustrated by myself, back when we were calling the great apes Pongidae.  Its an appropriate companion to the article below, written by Yahoo! Voices contributor David Claerr. Below is a short excerpt from David's great article, "Bigfoot Bones: Sasquatch Skeleton Analyzed and Compared to Human". IOnce you visit David's sit you can see three more 3d Illustrations. We would like to extend our thanks to David Claerr for permission to reprint his copyrighted material.

As this article is being written, there are some significant scientific efforts that are expected to be published in the near future, particularly in the field of DNA sequencing, that will provide exceptional evidence to help verify the existence of Sasquatch, or Bigfoot as a living species of hominid. Preliminary reports suggest that they may be more closely related to humans than any of the other "great apes" or higher primates, such as chimpanzees, bonobos, gorillas or orangutans, perhaps even related to or within the direct lineage that resulted in modern humans.
Skeleton comparison of human and Sasquatch
The purpose of this essay is to lay a groundwork for analysis of the structural anatomy, based on current evidence both from still and video imagery as well as what may be the actual physical, skeletal remains that have been exhumed in a few rare instances. (The important images accompanying this article can be enlarged by selecting them by the numbers and then clicking directly on the image.) In the course of both my independent and collaborative research of the Sasquatch, or Bigfoot, I have had the very good fortune to have access to collected evidence that is not available to the general public, and that in some cases, is either copyright protected or, by request, kept confidential pending further verification. I have been able to perform analysis and biometric measurements of cast prints of hands and feet as well as photometric measurements of skeletal remains of images from still and video footage. In addition, in my travels, I have been able to view physical hominin skeletal remains of indeterminate origin that are in excess of 8 feet tall.

Seattle's Henry Art Gallery Has Ceramic Bigfoot Skeleton

How did we miss this story? Some of you Bigfooters may remember Clayton Bailey, the ceramic and metal sculptor.

In 1971, inspired by "Bigfoot" stories in his favorite tabloid magazine, the Weekly World News, Clayton Bailey made a ceramic skeleton of an 8 foot humanoid, and claimed that the fictional Dr. Gladstone, an eccentric scientist, had discovered proof of the existence of Bigfoot. His neighbors and friends helped him discover the bigfoot skeleton, and dropping; in his backyard, which was handy, and it eliminated travel expenses. Seasonal mudslides on the nearby hillside even eliminated the need to dig. According to press releases issued by Dr. Gladstone.

Below is Clayton Bailey, in character as Dr.Gladstone, presenting his piece aptly titled "Bigfoot Skeleton."

Flash forward to nearly 40 years later and the Bigfoot skeleton is among one of 24,000 pieces in the permanent collection of Seattle's Henry Art Gallery. It was hidden in the attic among 100 pieces that are being displayed as "Vortexhibition Polyphonica". These pieces will be on display through March 2011.

What will be missing from the Gallery? Clayton Bailey's follow-up to his Bigfoot Skeleton. Three years later Bailey would, again, become inspired by Bigfoot and create a piece titled "Finding the Bigfoot Dropping" (Shown below)

You can read about the "Vortexhibition Polyphonica" at the Seattle Times

You can go to Clayton Bailey's very funny eccentric site here.

If you visit Bailey's website turn on your speakers and be warned it is rated PG-13 due to some mature humor.
