Study of the Brain
Victorian science was fascinated with the human brain. Phrenology was the scientific study of the brain focusing on personality and character and was based on the concept that certain areas of the brain have specific functions. Moods, data storage, creativity, and sensitivity were among the 'senses' that were neatly catalogued and given a defined location. A doctor's desk was not complete without a model of a head depicting the areas associated with each of the senses. One of the leading Phrenologists of this time was Lorenzo Niles Fowler (1811-1896) - this reproduction head is an exact replica of the head he had on his office in the 19th century.
