Romanae archetypae tabulae anatomicae novis...

Rome, 1783. Hand colored copperplate engraving. National Library of Medicine.

Bartolomeo Eustachi
(d. 1574)

Giulio de’Musi

A skeleton jauntily points to the top of the page. Its pelvis is fused to the top of a columnar pedestal, metaphorically suggesting the structural functions of hips and legs. The quartet of giant eyeballs and colorization are 18th-century additions.
