This is a picture of a human fetus at 40 weeks' gestational age (i.e. 38 weeks after fertilization).
The company behind 3DPregnancy.com is Tribal Internet Projects, a Dutch-based publisher of family websites. 3Dpregnancy.com was launched in 2007.
This particular picture was drawn by Melchior Meijer who is a 3D artist. He and 3Dpregnancy.com used various resources to produce the illustration, including books, DVD's and websites to verify how a fetus looks at this stage of development. Some of the resources relied upon were as follows:
A Child is Born (A book by Lennart Nilsson)
In the Womb (DVD)
In the Womb (Book)
Details about donation of image Edit
The owners of this image donated it to Wikimedia. The original version that the owners donated had a watermark which has subsequently been removed according to Wikimedia policy. See here. The present image (without watermark) was donated by Wouter Vergeer <email@example.com> on Wednesday, August 29, 2007 on behalf of 3DPregnancy.com. Mr. Vergeer stated in an email to Ferrylodge on that date:
|“|| For now we are only willing to share these four 3D pictures under the CC-SY-BA license. Lets first see how this goes before we decide to share more or, perhaps in the future, all our works....I noticed you changed the picture and removed the CC-SY-BA notification. Which is fine by us. We just added them to make sure everybody saw they were released under CC-SY-BA license and nobody would delete them. We did notice, however that the quality of the images has decreased
quite a lot due to the cropping. I enclosed new versions of the images at better quality with this email. Would you be so kind to upload these? Or should we do this? The company behind 3DPregnancy.com is Tribal Internet Projects. We are Dutch based publisher of family websites. We are working on a corporate website containing more company information. If you have any more questions, please let me know. And thank you for your involvement. With kind regards / Met vriendelijke groet,
