A CABINET containing a very highly finished specimen of modelling in wax representing our Saviour on the Cross. The visitor is invited to a close inspection of this figure. It is, perhaps, the most perfect production of the kind ever witnessed. It exhibits in a most correct manner the beauty and symmetry of the human form; several distinguished surgeons have pronounced it faultless, in its anatomical proportions,--the agony of physical suffering, is perfectly life-like, the clotted blood gushing from the pierced hands, is true to nature:--as a specimen of the art, it has met universal praise. The letters above the Cross signify Jesus of Nazareth, the King of the Jews. [P. 22.] [P. 22.]
