Ivory pregnant woman

The Medicine Man gallery showcases founder Sir Henry Wellcome's passion for medicine and art. His is one of the world's largest, most unusual - and least known - museum collections.

This 17th Century ivory anatomical model of a pregnant woman with removable parts was likely used by obstetric specialists.
