Beauchene "Exploded" Human Skull

A Beauchene skull is an "exploded" skull that has been disarticulated and painstakingly reassembled on a stand with hinged, sliding supports which allow the separated bones to be moved and studied. There is some debate as to which individual was the original creator of this type of preparation, but many agree that it was most likely a French physician name Edmé Pierre Chauvot de Beauchêne, who developed this method in the early 1800's.

This gorgeous skull has been expertly articulated and mounted to allow for close examination of the different bones that make up the human skull. There is a bit of damage to this piece throughout, and a few missing bones, however, it still displays very well and is absolutely stunning. This rare, antique specimen would make an impressive addition to any collection.
