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 was an important teaching tool through the formative years of plastic surgery. This is an early cast metal
example from the 1920's and is complete with all it's face parts. It's signed "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.
