Anatomical model heart circa 1890
“A scarce signed and dated 1855 antique anatomical model of the human head by Auzoux. The model is oversized (18″ OAH) and termed greatly enlarged by Auzoux. The half of a human head is quite detailed and dramatic. First generation French Auzoux anatomical models are very desirable.”
“A detailed anatomical model of the human head in mid-section. The life-size model is by Auzoux, Paris, and so marked. It is in excellent condition and is mounted on a later base.”

This Memento Mori showed up on BBC’s Antiques Roadshow on Sunday. Lars Tharp was the bone specialist who explained that ‘every scholar had something in the collection that reminded them of their mortality’. This skull and snake was carved (although he didn’t say what from – presuming ivory?) 100 years ago, possibly in India and is worth £3-4,000.
