Louisville, CO, USALive Auction
Europe, France or Germany, ca. 1st quarter of the 20th century. Lifesized and a bit macabre, but equally fascinating. Exposed anatomical model in an early prototype of plastic showing the internal musculature, organs, ribs, skull and glass eye. Comes with most of his internal organs, but "some assembly required" as well as much patience! A great piece of medical history. Size: 15" W x 33.5" H (38.1 cm x 85.1 cm)
