Buyer Protection Guaranteed

About

These models were used in conventional drawing anatomy class schools and academies of fine arts at the beginning of the century. They can be therefore found in different sizes and models.

The two proposed skinned models, although partially restored, have kept their authentic patina of time.

Large model height: 105 cm.
Small model height: 78 cm.
Base diameter: 28 cm.
