Entire Horse Skull from a Belgian Naturalist's Collection circa 1890

An entire horse skull from a nineteenth century Belgian naturalist's collection circa 1890. The interest in classifying and collecting specimens from the natural world reached its apogee in the nineteenth century. This desire to display one's knowledge as well as ability to afford not only to collect but display artifacts was paramount in educated and wealthy circles. The excellent condition as well as superb patina of this particular horse skull made it a key component of the collection especially when seen in contrast to specimens from the wild whose different physiognomy cold be a point of comparison.
