The original wax model in the University of Glasgow, is documented as by the Danish sculptor Michael Spang and was made for Dr. William Hunter who holds it in a portrait by Mason Chamberlain dating to 1769. Kemp records that an early manuscript belonging to the Hunterian Museum alludes to a figure in brass done from a model in wax by Mr. Burch and that other casts were made at Hunter's request.
