Antique real human sagittal skull section medical model
This was an antique medical specimen of a sagittal section of a human skull, sliced lengthwise to expose the inside of the skull and the sinus cavities.
This example is missing some of the bones now as it has the occipital, parietal and frontal bones. The frontal has become loose over time but could easily be re-glued to hold it in place if wished.
The inside of the cranium has been painted to show the veins and arteries and although this is a very old specimen, the colours are still pretty strong. The skull is mounted on a brass rod which would have stood in a wooden base.
There are a few remnants of wires in the frontal bones which would have acted as hinges for some of the smaller articulated bones.
