The human skull contains a plethora of bones and each bone contains a plethora of parts which are assigned with specific functions. The bone size ranges from the large frontal, parietals and occipital to minute vomer and nasal bones. Some bones are fragile like ethmoids and some bones are rock solid like petrous part of temporal bones. As a medicine student it is important to know each and every part of the individual bones in order to know the functions and also to understand the spatial orientation of all these bones. This study was done in the Department of Anatomy, DM-WIMS, Meppadi, Kerala. Mounting a human skull using fishing wire against the white background defines the spatial orientation of each and every bones in the human skull. Key words: Bones, Ethmoid, Fishing wire, Mounting, Vomer.
