Anatomical model of a human eye made of painted plaster, glass and papier-mache and mounted on a rectangular wooden base. The eye is painted cream and red with a blue-green lens and black pupil. The upper half of the eye (comprising the skin) can be removed to show the eyeball, which can be removed again to show the macula and retina. This part of the eye is made from glass and is also removeable, as is the pupil. The eye is positioned inside the socket and shows the optic nerve running behind the eye and the muscle. The model has been lacquered and is glued to the base.
