Part of model of myoglobin ("forest of rods") constructed in 1960 during work on the structure of the molecule to a resolution of 2 Angstroms: it comprises steel rods with meccano clips in wooden base-boards with Kendrew-type skeletal models showing the peptide chain

The British crystallographer John Kendrew and the Austrian-British molecular biologist Max Perutz built this remarkable model to represent the molecular structure of myoglobin, a compound that stores oxygen in muscles. The two scientists won the 1962 Nobel Prize in Chemistry for their work determining the structure of this and other globular proteins.
