3 great Italian teaching models of the human races by Paravia, early 1900’s.
Handpainted plaster (hollow inside), they were part of a set of 5 busts (missed “Tipo etiopico” – African – and “Tipo Malese” – Asian)
Height ca. 30-35 cm, in great condition (I can notice a restoration to the tip of the Indian, a dedicated pic for this minor flaw)

Established in 2005 in Italy, Nautilus tries to be a modern wunderkammer, where antique science and natural history meet, inspiring wonder. I mainly love antique scientific and medical instruments, but my interest extends to unusual or rare technologies and natural history.
