"A whole army of dermtatoses, in their precise representation, in their  exceptional crudeness, in their frightening realism; the ugly, the  monstrous, the painful…. [T]hese human remains, figures which are  collected at the hospital, are like souvenirs where treacherous  infections are revived."
— Description of the waxes at Hôpital Saint-Louis Musée des Moulages from La Cité des Misère, Léon  Roger-Milès, 1890, as quoted in Mary Hunter’s “Effroyable Réalism: Wax,  Femininity, and the Madness of Realist Fantasies” (via Morbid Anatomy)
