Jekabs Primanis Anatomy Museum
[pic][pri.jpg]In 1920 the Swedish professor Gaston Bakman founded the Institute of Anatomy and Histology. At the same time the Scientific Museum of Anatomy was established by Jekabs Primanis. The institute and the museum are housed on the premises of a former Orthodox seminary. The museum presents a rich variety of histological and anthropological exhibits and it acquaints the viewer with the basic principles of the structure of the human body. At the operating theatre future doctors improve their knowledge of anatomy, histology, embryology and anthropology. Today the museum has been enriched with paintings, water-colours and drawings of plastic anatomy, sculptures, stained glass panels and a fresco painting.
