Cool Character Figurine

Phrenology, termed the 'only true science of the mind' in its day, was a generally accepted pseudo-science of the 19th century. Phrenology was believed to be the next step in the evolution of the four humors. It taught that a person's physiognomy showed moral, intellectual and social development. It was also used to depict the future, access a suitor, and evaluate job applications.

More than a century later, Phrenology enjoys a revival of sorts. As the science of body features, it teaches that by observing someone's hands, feet and face, their mind and soul can be revealed. All aspects of character, from perception to benevolence, were located in certain locations of the brain. An iconic tool of the medical profession, these faculties were rendered on a shaped porcelain head. Such busts were popular in doctor's offices and Victorian libraries. 

Authentic Models' modern version displays attributes of character in cool, vibrant colors and to a natural curiosity about the mind and consciousness. Both styles of Phrenology Head (see coordinating items) are interesting as historical documents and fascinate in their own way as highly decorative accessories. Both easily double as enigmatic and practical bookends.
