Phrenology Porcelain Head Bust MG020 by Authentic Models

Phrenology Porcelain Head Bust MG020 Book Review

The Authentic Models Porcelain Phrenology Bust is an exact replica of the Staffordshire china fine cracked porcelain originals. Phrenology is a foreign subject to our modern medical practices but in the Victorian era it was common practice. Each of the 48 faculties of the brain served as a sort of map to a person's innate nature and personality. With such areas as love, intellectuality, energy levels, and morals; doctors believed they could tell everything about a person from mapping out the bumps and oddities of the human skull. Although Phrenologists are no longer in practice this bust will serve as a great conversation piece on your mantle or bookshelf. 7-1/2" L x 7-1/2" W x 13-1/2" H
