A rare 19th C papier-mâché model of the head made by Dr Auzoux and listed in his catalogue. Remarkable detail showing muscles, nerves and blood vessels in the head and neck.

There is too much to display in the photographs which show only the superficial views. Each section has been delicately put together with hinged pins and catches and the whole model can be dissembled to reveal the inner anatomy in just the same exquisite detail. A true masterpiece which traverses the boundaries where art meets science.
