Fetus (week 10)

The timing is probably only approximate and based on last menstrual period (LMP) rather than from fertilization. This may represent approximately week 8, that is the end of the embryonic period.

About The Models - One of a series of models commissioned by Giuseppe Galletti (? - 1819) currently held in the Institute and Museum of the History of Science (Italy) Istituto e Museo di Storia della Scienza (IMSS). Giuseppe Galletti and others used terracotta and wax models that he had commissioned in Florence between 1770 and 1775 to train surgeons and midwives. Wax models are life-sized and the terracotta versions are reduced to a 1:3 scale.
