"The Papier-Mache Anatomist" Louis Auzoux, Curious Expeditions
Two of my favorite things in one blog post! First, anatomical models, in this case those of Louis Thomas Jérôme Auzoux. Second, New York City-Based purveyor of hair-art, anatomical prints, and yes, even a life-sized Auzoux anatomical model: Obscura Antiques and Oddities. Check out yesterdays Curious Expiditions post "The Papier-Mache Anatomist" for a great introduction into Auzoux's work and career, as well as a inventory of some of Obscura Antique's many charms.
