Six anatomical drawings occur at the end of a volume containing Ṭibb al-Akbar (Akbar's Medicine) by Muḥammad Akbar, known as Muḥammad Arzānī (d. 1722/ 1134) in an undated copy probably made in the 18th century. Illustrations, in ink and opaque watercolors, of a pregnant woman with abdomen and chest opened to reveal the internal organs and fetus.
