Louis-Thomas-Jérôme  Auzoux

Louis Auzoux was a Parisian medical school graduate and was the pre-eminent maker of plaster and papier mâché anatomical models during the 19th century. He developed anatomically accurate models of body structures out of papier mâché, calling these mock-ups anatomy clastique (from the Greek word klastos, which means broken in pieces), because they could be taken apart and reassembled by the student. Apparently he also dealt in other natural history specimens that museums and educational institutions might need.
