Views of the museum
According to Dr. Cabrera, this stone (one meter in diameter) portrays a Caesarean operation. The surgeon on the left is holding a knife, while the one to the right provides support. The book (pages 110-112) goes into great detail regarding the details of the symbols on this particular stone.
This is one of many in a series of engraved stones portraying a heart transplant. Part of the series shows how the blood of a pregnant woman is used before the transplant, in order to impede the rejection of the transplanted heart.
This and the following photo portray a partial brain transplant. Here the
incision on the cerebral hemispheres that are to be transplanted is begun.
Another photo from the above series shows the extraction
of the cerebral hemispheres that are to be transplanted.
