Provenance

The photographic print was most likely created from an image taken circa 1907 by the staff of Warren Anatomical Museum for R. Blanchard's article in the Bulletin of the French Society of the History of Medicine on the depicted wax model. The original wax model was donated to Harvard Medical School in August 1783 and was probably the first museum specimen donated to the school. The original model is no longer extant.
