Query: Bone Creatures

On behalf of Liam Gray,

Is anyone aware of any mythological skeletons or bone constructs in folklore, specifically entities or beings resulting from mixing the bones of multiple bodies or animals?

Such creatures existed in the "Cabinets of Curiosities" in the 19th and early 20th centuries, and certainly into side shows/freak shows. Not sure about "mythological" skeletons in folklore. Motif index?
