This is not Lady Windemere's fan

"Edward Jenner (1749-1823) was the pioneer of vaccination but was also known for his delicate dissections. Here, the section of the stomach has been flattened and injected with wax to show the veins and arteries as well as the delicate membrane of the stomach wall. It may have been used as a teaching aid to show the structure of the stomach."
From the collections of the Science Museum (U.K.).


  1. Wow. Our vein systems really aren't any different than plants, are they?

  2. Ceci n'est pas une fan.
