archetypae tabulae anatomicae novis...
1783. Hand colored copperplate engraving. National Library of Medicine.
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.
