Phrenology Head: What’S Really Going on Inside That Brain of Yours


Do you miss the scientific quackery of the early 18th century? Then have I’ got a deal for you. This phrenology head is the perfect way to figure out what’s wrong with your brain – as long as you don’t care if it’s wrong 100% of the time.


Perfect for wannabe charlatans, this Phrenology bust is actually a reproduction of the original “medical” evaluation tool used by Phrenology madman L.N. Fowler, who theorized that you could point to specific personality traits based on the shape of your skill, mapped out into 48 faculties of your brain. It’s guaranteed to make you look way smarter than you really are.


Want one? Head on over to and you can find them for a wide variety of wacky prices, ranging from $35 to $888 (USD). Why are the prices so all over the map? Because they’re craaaaaaazy!

    How can you tell if it is a reproduction or not? I have one from R.F. Freda. Its 11 inches, has Chapman marked on the inside of the mold, and it looks the same as the original head. But how can you tell if its an original or a reproduction?
