old Acupuncture models

These ancient anatomical models for acupuncture are now collected in the acupuncture museum of the Institute of Acupuncture & Moxibustion, of CACMS (China Academy of Chinese Medical Sciences) in Beijing.

The first one with grey background is an imitation of Tiansheng model in Song dynasty (it was imitated in Ming dynasty, and was collected in Russia).


The second one (with opened belly) is an acupuncture model made in Minguo (the Republic of China, 1912-1949).
