Those poor Chrysochroa fulminans (Jewel Beetle) don't look very well. This one looks a tad happier!

It is not mammalian.

It is bone, but not a carving. Well, to be more specific, it's supposed to be made of bone, but I doubt it actually is.

Lets just re-cap here.

It's part of a skeleton (or model of a skeleton) which is 50cms high and under 50cms long.
It is not that of a mammal nor exoskeleton of an insect.

Would it be avian?

It's in the class Aves, but it's not a modern bird.

Karen, good guess - part of the jaw is in the photo!
