Bison skull

The bison skull.

Bison skull is a decorative ornament at Sherlock Holmes and John Watson's appartment 221B Baker Street. It hangs on the wall between the two windows in the main living room.


The bison skull has appeared in all Sherlock episodes. It also appeared in the unaired pilot of Sherlock.

Behind the scenesEdit

The bison skull was Production Designer Arwel Wyn Jones' favourite object on the 221B set. The skull was purchased online before being sprayed a glossy black. The headphones were not planned, but instead were a spur of the moment addition.[1]
