Authentic Models Colorful Phrenology Head with Cool Character

Phrenology, termed “the only true science of mind” in its day, was a generally accepted pseudo-science of the 19th century. Phrenology was believed to be the next step in the evolution of the four humors. It taught that a person’s physiognomy showed moral, intellectual, and social development. It was also used to predict the future, assess a suitor, and evaluate job applications. More than a century later phrenology enjoys a revival of sorts. As the science of body features, it teaches that by observing someone’s hands, feet, and face, their mind and soul can be revealed.

All aspects of character, from perception to benevolence, were located in certain regions in the brain. An iconic tool of the medical profession, these faculties were rendered on a shaped, porcelain head. Such busts were popular in doctor’s offices and Victorian libraries. The Phrenology Head was as much a symbol of 19th century science as a world globe in the workshop of a 16th century cartographer or an armillary in an astronomer’s study.

Choose between the two distinct Phrenology Heads.

The authentic, exact replica shows all 48 faculties drawn with precision. Historic science at your fingertips…

The modern version displays attributes of character in cool, vibrant colors, and appeals to a natural curiosity about the mind and consciousness. Both are interesting as historical documents, and fascinate in their own way as highly decorative accessories. Both easily double as enigmatic and practical bookends.
