Nasal Immortality

It's Lesser Known Museum Week over at the Athanasius Kircher Society:

Included in the collection is a cast of Tyco Brahe’s legendary silver nose as well as an “Unknown Nose,” which according to one guidebook, “serves as a memorial to all those who didn’t qualify for nasal immortality.
