Larynx

Besides the ear, Auzoux also made the organ that produces sound, the larynx. He made a model of this which could be unfolded into several parts. This example comes from a former high school in Deventer. It may have been used there to teach both in biology and in physics lessons the physical principles of the operation of the vocal cords. This model is a wonderful example of a combination of different joints Auzoux used. On the photograph one clearly can see the pin–hole connection. But in this model it is combined with a hinge, so that the part that is taken away still keeps attached to the rest. Preventing loss of the different parts. Also little hooks can be distinguished.
