Object Annex :: Aberdeen's Zoological Models
Models have long been used in biological and medical education. The University of Aberdeen Zoology Museum has a collection with models made by some of the greatest exponents of the art: Glass jellyfish by the Blashkas, wax mites by Deyrolle, a pull-apart horse's hoof by Auzoux, papier mache botanicals by the Brendels --in fact representatives from the entire pantheon of scientific model-making gods.
Please note :: MoD will be undertaking a major retrospective of the Blashkas in the near future...
