That is a misleading image, as there are now thousands of hominid fossils.
They are however mostly fragmentary, often consisting of single bones or isolated teeth. The list is sorted by species, going from older to more recent species. A braincase is the cranium minus the face and upper jaw.

This is a mostly complete cranium with a small brain (between 320 and 380 cc). 2002, Wood 2002) It has many primitive apelike features, such as the small brainsize, along with others, such as the brow ridges and small canine teeth, which are characteristic of later hominids. Most remains are teeth, but there is also a partial lower jaw of a child, a partial cranium base, and partial arm bone from 2 individuals.
AL 129-1, Australopithecus afarensis Discovered by Donald Johanson in 1973 at Hadar in Ethiopia (Johanson and Edey 1981; Johanson and Taieb 1976). This find consisted of portions of both legs, including a complete right knee joint which is almost a miniature of a human knee, but apparently belongs to an adult. About 40% of her skeleton was found, and her pelvis, femur (the upper leg bone) and tibia show her to have been bipedal.
AL 288-1, "Lucy", Australopithecus afarensis Discovered by Donald Johanson and Tom Gray in 1974 at Hadar in Ethiopia (Johanson and Edey 1981; Johanson and Taieb 1976). She was about 107 cm (3'6") tall (small for her species) and weighed about 28 kg (62 lbs).
Sts 5, "Mrs Ples", Australopithecus africanus Discovered by Robert Broom in 1947 at Sterkfontein in South Africa. It has usually been thought to be female, but there has been a recent claim that it is male. It is about 2.5 million years old, with a brain size of about 485 cc.
Taung 1, "Taung Child", Australopithecus africanus Discovered by Raymond Dart in 1924 at Taung in South Africa (Dart 1925).The find consisted of a full face, teeth and jaws, and an endocranial cast of the brain.It is between 2 and 3 million years old, but it and most other South African fossils are found in cave deposits that are difficult to date.Sahelanthropus tchadensis Ardipithecus ramidus Australopithecus anamensis Australopithecus afarensis Kenyanthropus platyops Australopithecus africanus Australopithecus garhi Australopithecus sediba Australopithecus aethiopicus Australopithecus robustus This list includes fossils that are important for either their scientific or historic interest, or because they are often mentioned by creationists.One sometimes reads that all hominid fossils could fit in a coffin, or on a table, or a billiard table.
