附註 Introduction: Unveiling an anatomical enigma -- The birth of the Anatomical Venus -- From sacred to scientific use of wax -- Venus at the fairground -- Ecstasy, fetishism, and doll worship -- Venus, the uncanny, and the ghost in the machine
"A disquieting volume of deftly crafted dissectable wax Venuses and slashed beauties conceived in the 18th and 19th centuries that demonstrated female anatomy in the world's museums and fairgrounds. Incisive commentary traces their curious evolution and examines their paradoxical existence; Venus flickers on the edges of medicine and myth, votive and vernacular, fetish and fine art"--Page 4 of cover
Includes bibliographical references (pages 218-219) and index
