The manikin was designed as a practical obstetrical teaching tool for the training of midwives. The skull is attached to the
torso of the manikin with a round, metal eye-hook and fabric tape which allows for full range of motion. In addition to the
facial features and anatomically correct suture lines of the skull, the body of the manikin has a rib cage and vertebral column
formed by placing a variety of sizes of cords under the leather covering. Clavicles, scapulas, tibias, ilium and iliac crests
are indicated by the use of additional, leather (?) inserts under the leather "skin" covering the manikin. Small nipples are
also palpable. Individual fingers and toes have been created by stitching. A short umbilical cord is present on the abdomen.
