Inspired by Leonardo Da Vinci and Claude Beauchene
During the late 15th century, Leonardo Da Vinci sketched an “exploded skull” to show the innter anatomy of the head. In the mid-1800s, an anatomist named Claude Beauchene was inspired by Da Vinci’s drawings and sketches, and developed a way to display the anatomy of the head. The Beauchene Skull is a disarticulated human skull that has been reassembled on a stand, allowing for copmlex sutructures to be studied individually. Designed by Chris Itoh, each bone from one piece of uncut square paper.
