Beauchene Skull, also known as an exploded skull, is a disarticulated human skull that has been carefully reassembled on a stand with jointed, movable parts that allow for the opening and studying of the skull as a whole or each piece individually.

Claude Beauchene the mid-1800s French anatomist  developed this method to display the anatomy of the head. Beauchene would meticulously clean a skull, separate its bones, and mount them on a stand designed to exhibit them at once individually and in context.

The concept of the exploded skull was first introduced byLeonardo da Vinci, seen in his anatomical drawings.
