This Axis Scientific 3-Part Human Skull with Dura Mater, Blood Vessel Pathways, and Sinus Cavities model is life-sized and medically detailed in structure.
It can be disassembled into 3-parts: Calvaria, Base of Skull, and Mandible. The calvaria is removable to show the internal structure of the skull and is attached using magnets and small pegs for secure replacement.
The skull has a realistic bone texture and color with clear sutures, allowing for clear identification of the individual bones of the skull with all the joints, sutures, fissures, foramen, and styloid processes present. The articular disc of the temporomandibular joint is displayed, carefully cradling the mandibular condyle and allowing for the smooth articulation of the jaw. The permanent teeth are displayed, as well as an impacted wisdom tooth. Even the texture of the palatine bones is clearly visible, making this a truly deluxe skull model.
In addition, this model offers a vital 3-dimensional perspective to the cranium, showing the venous channels which drain the blood from the brain that are situated between the two layers of a removable dura mater.
It is a perfect tool for professional teaching/studying the human anatomy form and function of the skull, dura mater and cranial sinuses.

Medical Education, Patient Consultation
I haven't found a skull with dura mater represented anywhere else. There are full heads with the dura mater shown, but I like the skull aspect. I find this to be a unique feature for teaching and learning.
One of a kind skull.
