Caption: Horse anatomy. Preserved dissected head and neck of a horse. The skin has been stripped to reveal muscles, blood vessels (coloured blue for veins and red for arteries), nerves, bone and connective tissue. The model was created in the 18th century by French anatomist Honore Fragonard, at the Alfort National Veterinary School in Paris, France. The exact method of preservation used by Fragonard was a secret, but it is thought that cadavers were first bathed in alcohol, then injected with wax mixed with turpentine. Fragonard produced over 3,000 specimens in his lifetime. Photographed at the Fragonard Museum, Paris, France.
