This piece was painted and cut for medical science as part of the medical osteology trade. This piece was prepared by Rudiger. The muscle origins are painted red whilst the muscle insertions are painted blue on the right side of the skull. The skull is comprised of 10 parts. the skull has a horizontal section (cranium), sagittal section, a further vertical section of the frontal sinus. The left temporal bone is also removable and sectioned into two to expose the inner ear. The mandible and maxilla on the left side are opened to expose the roots of the teeth together with the dental vessels and nerves. The right maxilla is also on a hinged section which exposes vertical sections of the teeth from root to crown. The skull has full dentition and all the teeth are perfect. The amount of work that has gone into preparing this skull is astronomical. Purchased in the 1970s, this piece has been kept in perfect condition. Now available on the public market, this skull is an ornate preparation, designed to maximize understanding of human anatomy. These skulls are rare and beautiful pieces of medical history. Responsibly sourced, beautifully preserved, and thoughtfully selected.
