Description
Wax male anatomical figure, showing venous and some organs, in case, by Susini and Calenzuoli, Florence, 1776-1780
Muscle and bones have been stripped from this half life-size wax figure to show the veins of the body and the internal organs of the chest, such as the lungs. This model is part of a series showing the internal structures of the body. The life-size versions were used in the Zoological Museum of the University of Florence, known as La Specola, by the Grand Duke of Tuscany when teaching anatomy to students.
The series was probably made by the workshop of one of the most famous wax modellers of the time, Clemente Susini (1754-1814), who was renowned for his accurate anatomical detail.
