The wax original of this écorché was thought to have been sculpted by Michelangelo, though today it is attributed to the French sculptor Pierre Puget (1620-1694). If so, it is possible he could have created it with reference to an earlier work made by Michelangelo, one of his students, or someone working in his style.
