This is a school chart created by Dr. Louis Auzoux, a French physician. They were used as teaching tools in France from around 1900 into the 1960s. For anyone who dares to go a little crazy with their imagination, these images become either a total psychedelic experience, or the proof that the microcosmic side of our world might be more than we can handle.
We're unsure what the chart exactly shows, but we believe it's a kind of fertilisation. We've looked closely and this chart shows obvious signs that it has been either partially, or completely, hand-drawn.
Either way, these vintage school charts are beautiful and fascinating. To us, it is almost unbelievable that they were actually used as educational tools for explaining these difficult topics.
In vintage condition, showing minor wears. Colours may differ slightly from the photos.
