Anatomically Correct

Gorgeous, vintage plaster and wood anatomical models have been making "house calls" (there had to be a pun somewhere) for quite sometime. They and the medical charts used to teach anatomy are remarkably sculptural and graphic with beautiful palettes. A bit macabre for some, medical accessories create engaging moments in the home and provide the hypochondriac in your life hours of entertainment.
