Description
(a) wax model (moulage) of the twelfth 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 through the vaginal
canal with a string through the cervix; this stage shows the fallopian tube and ovary being
tied off on the other side; the uterus is now separated from the blood supply; the threads at the
sides indicate stitches; the model is painted to depict true colour; (b) model of a vaginal speculum
made of silver metal (aluminum?) used to demonstrate the use of the speculum to hold down the
perineum during a vaginal hysterectomy; the speculum model was originally attached to the wax model,
but has come off
