Phrenology Minitray

Phrenology Minitray

Here we present to you a colorful old phrenology illustration from the late 1800s. Phrenology was a quack medical practice, popular around the same time, in which areas or formations on the head corresponded with emotions or attributes. This head features seven themed areas, divided into forty-three sections of pure junk science: “Sublimity,” “Mirthfulness,” and “Vitativeness.” (Some of these aren’t even words.) Perfect for all the debunkers, faith healers, and scholars in your midst.

The imagery is hand-cut, pasted onto a surface, and buried under many coats of finish (we use Envirotex Lite polymer resin). To finish, the bottom is painted, stamped, and sealed with a clear matte protective coating.
