To the heart of flower : botanical models and European flowers in the XIXth Century

Project: Research

Project Details


In the nineteenth century, botanical models were used in university education. These three dimensional objects were designed to represent the shape of the plants but also their structure in the smallest details and, if necessary, it was made possible to open them or take them to pieces in order to show the hidden architecture of the plant. A remarkable collection of models has been preserved at the FUNDP. It will be studied and presented in its time.
