Notepad with illustrations of the museum's kidney preparations.
There are over 40 preparations of kidney variations at the RSU Anatomy Museum. All of these kidneys used to filter blood, create blood cells and performed other processes that are important to life. The images of the kidneys in the notebook were made for the first Latvian anatomy professor Jēkabs Prīmanis' study Dystopia renis congenita als atavistische Erscheinung (1924).

Skins catalogue

The catalogue Skins is an illustrated catalogue of the museum’s collection of tattooed skin specimens.
The RSU Anatomy Museum collection contains 30 preparations of tattooed skin made in the anatomy theatre from 1921 to 1932. The collection serves as rare evidence of the practice of tattooing in Latvia at the beginning of the 20th century. It also raises questions about why anatomists decided to prepare, preserve, dry, frame and exhibit the tattoos, as well as who the people whose skin has been preserved were.
