This chapter deals with the characteristic features of Anna Morandi's early anatomical practice with her husband, Giovanni Manzolini. Morandi and Manzolini used a method of wax modeling whereby they undertook the delicate process of filling the cast by successive layers with their special formula of hot, tinted wax. They showed human anatomy within their home, but this was not unusual. Through their wax anatomies, Morandi and Manzolini fulfilled the Marsilian ideal in explicit and innovative ways. The predominant force of their images drew from their ability to instantiate new and useful knowledge of the body.
