Object description

image: The interior of an operating theatre with an operation in progress. A male patient under anaesthetic is being operated on by four surgeons and tended to by an anaesthetist, who sits by his head in the foreground. All of the medical staff are female and dressed in white medical smocks and white cloth caps, apart from the anaesthetist who is not wearing a cap. The surgeons stand directly underneath a strip light suspended from the ceiling and appear to be operating on the patient's stomach or appendix.
