Intricate wax model depicting the lower abdomen of a pregnant woman, complete with fetus, from the late 18th century. It was recently on display as part of the “Arte y Carne” Exhibition at the Javier Puerta Museum in Madrid. Wax models like this were used for teaching anatomy to medical students at a time when few bodies were available for dissection. Although we don’t know her name, this woman continues to teach us centuries after her death. Wax models very much represent the merging of science and art which characterized the Enlightenment.
