A watercolor of a 17th century physician wearing plague preventive garb. The equivalent of a modern hazmat suit, the costume was made almost entirely of waxed leather. The hat indicated the physician's profession and the cane was used to manipulate objects at a distance. The beaked mask contained fragrant materials like rose, mint and lavender that promised to keep away the foul miasmas believed to transmit disease. It was, in effect, a primitive respirator.
