Another oddity museum for all the bizarre lovers!

The Musée Fragonard d’Alfort is a museum of anatomical oddities.

It opened to the public in 1991, and today consists of three rooms containing a large collection of anatomical oddities and dissections, most of which date from the 19th and early 20th centuries.

In addition to animal skeleton and dissections such as a piglet displayed in cross-section, the museum contains a substantial collection of monstrosities Siamese twin lambs, a two-headed calf, a 10-legged sheep, and a colt with one huge eye.

The museum’s most astonishing items are the famous “écorchés” (flayed figures) prepared by Honoré Fragonard.

His speciality was the preparation and preservation of skinned cadavers, of which he prepared some 700 examples. Only 21 remain; all are on display in the museum’s final room

Skeletal Creatures Carved From Everyday Objects - Maskull Lasserre

Canadian artist Maskull Lasserre extracts the most delicate anatomical forms of animals and humans from common everyday objects like  picture frame, hanger or a bed corner.

Born 1978 in Calgary, Alberta, he has lived in South Africa and Ottawa and now lives in Montreal. Lasserre’s drawings and sculptures explore the unexpected potential of the everyday through allegories of value, expectation, and utility. Elements of nostalgia, accident, humor, and the macabre are incorporated into works that induce strangeness in the familiar, and provoke uncertainty in the expected.
