Caption: Dwarfism, 19th-century artwork. Burmese dwarfs Smaun (left) and Fatma (right) standing next to a champagne bottle. These two dwarfs, brother (Smaun) and sister (Fatma), had the surname Sing Hpoo. They toured Europe and the USA in the 1890s. Here, Fatma is 65 centimetres tall and aged 16. Smaun is 2 years younger and 5 centimetres shorter. Fatma died aged 22, having reached a height of 71 centimetres, and is buried in Texas, USA. Dwarfism (short stature) has a wide variety of causes. Artwork from the 19th volume (first period of 1897) of the French popular science weekly 'La Science Illustree'.
