Description
Wax model (moulage) of the eighth step in a vaginal hysterectomy on a prolapsed uterus pulled down through the introitus; the model is made of oil-painted beeswax with talc, built up with gauze; the model shows a woman's vagina with a prolapsed uterus being pulled down from the vaginal canal with
a string which is through the cervix; this stage shows the doctor separating the blood supply to the uterus by clamping and cutting the parametrium then tying each cut segment with thread; a model of a vaginal speculum made of silvercoloured metal (aluminum?) can be seen holding down the perineum; the wax model is painted to depict true colour
