HUMANLIKE SKELETONS POSE FOR ARTISTS

To aid students of art and medicine in studying the postures of the human body, a young German sculptor has devised skeleton puppets that can be adjusted to anypose. The figures are made of aluminum, and action of their joints is patterned after that found in the human body.

The illustration at the left shows the inventor of the skeleton puppets viewing a pair of his creations which show all of the bones.
