insects and butterflies and phrenology – oh my!

Perhaps it’s just me, but when I think of phrenology, I don’t think of butterflies and dragonflies, mother’s day gifts, or attractive busts. But perhaps that’s just me.

From the NYPL:

These ceramic phrenology heads recall days when some believed that the shape of the skull indicated a person’s temperament and mental capacity. Each fascinating ceramic piece is decorated with butterflies and friendly insects. An attractive new version of the phrenology head!
