DescriptionAn anatomical model of a human face, neck, and shoulders. The model appears to be made of plaster. On the side facing away from the viewer, the face and scalp are seen with skin and hair attached. The skin looks to be a pink or peach color but has yellow splotches and is really bumpy; the plaster on the skin could have been damaged. The hair on the scalp is a dark brown color. The ear is chipped, and the nose is chipped as well. On the side facing the viewer, the internal structures are shown. The top part of the brain, the cerebrum, has been cut away to show only the gray matter. The white matter of the cerebellum is shown and is yellow in color. It has nerves and blood vessels attached. In the neck region, the muscles are not seen and just the vertebrae are shown. In the lower part of the neck, cut portions of the blood vessels are seen to expose the lower part of the cervical vertebrae. In the mouth, most of the tongue is cut to show the oral cavity. Only a few of the teeth are seen. The skin in the front part of the shoulder region are cut. The heads of the humerus bones are seen. The clavicle bone is shown and it is cut in the middle. The muscles adjacent to the clavicle are seen. The humerus bones are a light gray color. The clavicles, skull, and vertebrae are a light beige color, and they have red speckles in the middle which possibly represent the bone marrow. There is a purple structure in the front of the throat. The model sits on a black rectangular wooden stand. One side of the stand is completely missing. On the back of the neck is the letter "M" written in black marker. Dimensions are: 12.5" H x 8.5" W x 16" L; weight: 9 lbs, 3.1 oz.
