French Anatomical Face Model
This is a beautiful and delicately sculpted face. It's cast in hollow hard rubber with a lacquer finish.
I am told that there is a story about these life-size models... the pictured face was supposedly a drowning victim.
Whether she was famous or not it was still quite a sensation in Paris.
The highly detailed front is hand-drawn and labeled with facial muscles.
The back is signed. It reads "le masque d"etude", S. Laule.... $550
