Anatomical Venus: Medical Models from 18th Century Europe

These photos show anatomical guides used for educational purposes, first used in 18th century Europe. The figures seem odd in comparison to those seen today, which are absent of many details present in the photos shown here, such as strands of pearls and makeup on the female forms. The figures were generally made of wax.

See more examples (some borderline NSFW that are strangely sexualized) in this article at Dangerous Minds.
