Our Phrenology busts are an exact replica of the Staffordshire china fine cracked porcelain originals.
Phrenology is long since abandoned by modern medical practices but in the Victorian era it was common practice. Each of the 48 faculties of the brain served as a sort of map to a persons innate nature and personality. With such areas as love, intellectuality, energy levels, and morals; doctors believed they could tell everything about a person from mapping out the bumps and oddities of the human skull.
A great conversation piece for your mantle or bookshelf.
