Important 1920s Medical Artist Model


This is a life-size medical model. They were used as teaching aids for medical students. These models were an important part of medical history and a teaching tool through the formative years of plastic surgery. This is an early cast metal example from the 1920s and is complete with all it's four removable face parts. It's attributed to The Plastic Surgery Laboratories. Every time I look at this display I can't help but think it could have been done by the Surrealist master Salvador Dali. We rarely sell examples like this from our museum collection. It's a perfect example of what we call industries tribal art.
