Introduction: Anatomy museum specimens are used as a visual undergraduate teaching aid, which are gradually replacing cadaveric teaching as nowadays human cadavers are becoming difficult to obtain. Materials and Methods: Paraffin wax was used for mounting anatomical specimens to replace age-old methods of using plaster of Paris and glass sheets. Results and Conclusion: Wax mounting of specimens resulted in better understanding of anatomical details and relations of structures. This technique is easy to use, inexpensive, and reproducible.
