A fantastically detailed late 19th C early 20th papier-mâché model of the brain, made by Dr Auzoux and listed in his catalogue.
The attention to detail is breathtaking and this includes the anatomical landmarks of the cerebral hemispheres, corpus callosum and central brain, brain stem and cerebellum. The structures are all labelled and numbered and these pictures only scratch the surface. The whole model comes apart and as each section is removed new treasures are revealed within. Even the various tracts within the cerebral hemispheres are individually marked with beautifully drawn paper fan like structures. Amazing!
