Anatomia del corpo humano…
Rome, 1559. Copperplate engraving. National Library of Medicine.
Juan Valverde de Amusco(ca. 1525 - ca. 1588)[anatomist]
A flayed cadaver holds his skin in one hand and a dissecting knife in the other. The skin’s distorted face has the appearance of a ghost or a cloud, suggesting that spirit has been separated from, or peeled off of, the fleshy inner man.
