Real Beauchene Skull, Early Medical School Teaching Display

About

A Beauchene Skull, also known as an exploded skull, is a disarticulated human skull that has been painstakingly reassembled on a stand with jointed, movable supports that allows for the moving and studying of the skull as a whole or each piece individually. In the mid-1800s French anatomist Claude Beauchene developed this method to display the anatomy of the head. Beauchene would meticulously clean a skull, separate its bones, and mount them on a stand designed to exhibit them at once individually and in context. This is a highly decorative and detailed example. It's an early skull that has been mounted in the Victorian style with a beautiful turned base.
