Human leg anatomy. Preserved dissected cadaver of a man's leg. The skin has been stripped to reveal muscles, blood vessels (coloured red for arteries and blue for veins), 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 3000 specimens in his lifetime. Photographed at the Fragonard Museum, Paris, France.
