Description

Bronze bust of 'Ottaviano Neves' according to the Belgian Club. Although a nearby hospital has his name, we haven't found information about him. Possibly he is the same as 'J. Octaviano Neves e Mello Alvarenga', who was in 1950 the first professor of anatomy at the Faculty of Medical Sciences (Wikipedia).
