An extremely rare German Museum Display Bas Relief Medical Tablet. This one depicts the disease syphilis at its first stages on the chest. These first symptoms show a painless round open sore which is surrounded by firm, raised edges. Bas-relief is a type of sculpture that has less depth to the faces and figures than they actually have. This very scarce display piece was part of a collection removed from the Hygiene Museum in Dresden. It measures 32 x 26cms and is a must have for a serious collector. See our Medical Section for the other tablets available.
