Phrenology 8" Head Bust

A Phrenology head or bust is a table-top representation of a human head showing attributes supposedly associated with various areas of the brain according to phrenology, a pseudoscience. Introduced by Austrian physician Franz Joseph Gall in the 1790s, phrenology was a system by which it was thought character traits could by determined through study of bumps on a patient's head.

A 19th century revival of interest in phrenology led to the manufacture of illustrated ceramic, plaster and metal heads used to study certain types of behavior by associating them with delineated areas on the head.
