Moulages are individualized wax models that were very popular as teaching aids in medicine during the 19th and until the first half of the 20th century. After a period of decline, moulages have become a subject of interest again in more recent times since they represent unique artifacts of art, craftsmanship, and medical history.

Some relicts have survived and have been restored.
