HERE’S AN INCREDIBLE 19th CENTURY, POLYCHROMED, carved life size anatomy study model of a torso. The maker is anonymous, and is thought to be made in the tradition of the French master model maker Dr. Louis Auzoux (1797-1880). There was possibly a cover but, according to art dealer James Caswell there appears to be no fastening devices. Despite a few small repairable breaks on the left shoulder area, this medical display is in original and well-preserved condition. The size is 29 x 16 x 10 inches.

That is quite amazing. I'm intrigued and really want to reach through the machine and touch it. True story.
