Hey, PSA that these kind of cool and creepy looking ceramic models of human heads with areas marked off with different labels/functions are an artifact of - a long-debunked 18th Century that attempted to rationalize systemic racism, sexism, ableism, and classism.

Here's an easy rule of thumb: If you're comparing skulls and/or head shapes/sizes to prove a point about the differences between categories of humans, that's phrenology, and it is absolute 100% pure bullshit.
