A large ceramic vintage style phrenology head with crackled finish and fantastic detail.

Phrenology Head Large Porcelain. A fantastic oddity to complete every aspiring medico's desk. This is a wonderful and informative ceramic bust based on the pseudoscience of phrenology. Phrenology is the study of the human skull. It is based on the concept that the brain is the organ of the mind, and that certain brain areas have specific functions. An American leading phrenologist of his time, L.N. Fowler, gained considerable fame with his phrenology head, which has become a symbol of the discipline. This bust is made from ceramic, and hand-painted in an antique white crackle finish with a phrenological map of the different faculties. This bust would be a great addition to libraries, doctor`s offices, book shelves or your favourite creativity area! It is a very ancient object of study. The first philosopher to locate mental faculties in the head was in fact Aristoteles. Hand painted Phrenology Head statue
