Artificial Anatomy: Papier Mache Anatomical Models

This exhibit from the National Museum of American History (Also reviewed in the February 22, 2002 NSDL Scout Report for Life Sciences) gives a look at their collection of paper mache anatomical models. The models themselves (human, veterinary, and botanical) are displayed as expandable thumbnails in the Collection section of the exhibit. The History and Preservation sections give background, including .pdf-formatted conservation reports. Users looking for more information can consult the bibliography available from the resources link at the bottom of the page. The Body Parts section offers a bit of whimsy, asking users to identify which parts of the full-sized anatomical model are represented in the mystery images that pop up on the screen.
