Artist's Description

Looking up the morgue slab from the bottom you can clearly see the wishbone design of the blood trench here, designed to carry the bloody away from the body while it was worked on. At the top centre of the slab you can see two protruding lumps, designed to hold the head up straight while the pathologist carries out the work, a unusual feature on a morgue slab.
