PHRENOLOGY "For thirty years I have studied cranial and living heads form all parts of the world, and have found in every instance that there is a perfect correspondence between the conformation of the healthy skull of an individual and his known characteristics. To make my observations available I have prepared a bust of superior formed and marked the divisions of the organs in accordance with my researches and varied experience. L.N.FOWLER."
Head is extensively mapped into areas of phrenological importance. Areas include courage, order, love of home, identity, friendship, sociability, sublimity, ideality, intuitive reasoning, and many, many more.
A real conversation piece. Hand-painted and made one at a time, these are unique and individual. Do not expect perfection and uniformity from one phrenology head to the next. An uneven brush mark here and there are expected and part of its charm. This antique reproduction is what it is, flaws and all. Brown spots are intentional, as are all other apparent "flaws". If you would buy a pair of jeans that looked like they had not been washed for a month or had holes worn through them, then you understand the concept.
A real conversation piece.
A great office or den object for any medical professional, or for the collector of esoteric items. Stands 5 3/4" tall, 2 1/4" wide, and is 3" deep. Small but Impressive.
