Ever wondered what’s really going on inside that brain of yours? A psychology head poster, or a Porcelain Phrenology Head Figurine, might give you the details. And foremost (or additionally) it’s a trendy decor detail! We saw many of these around, mostly figurines but also posters, on our antiques stroll in London some week ago. Now I’ve also caught a glimpse of one in a glossy magazine and realized they are one of those hot n’ trendy details….
Sprung from the steady science trend; we’ve seen anatomy, botany, you name it, even entomology. This science, or pseudoscience to be specific, is called phrenology and is based on the concept that the brain is the organ of the mind. It studies the skull as a guide to various mental faculties, emotions, mood and spiritual traits. Analysis practice was developed by L.N. Fowler who – to illustrate his findings – devised a bust on which it all was illustrated on a cranial map. And here we have it, it’s supertrendy and will make you appear like a pseudo-psychiatrist ;) Head to the left £19.99 at Rockett St George.
