More about the image
The beautiful, thought provoking image on this bookmark comes from Andreas Vesalius’ 1543 book, De humani corporis fabrica. It is difficult to convey just how revolutionary this book was, but Vesalius is widely considered to be the founder of modern human anatomy.
Vesalius designed the book as a text for medical students. This explains the Greek letters that annotate the drawing. Many of the drawings in the book display the dissected bodies in realistic lifelike poses. In this image, the skeleton rests on a gravedigger’s shovel. Vesalius revolutionised the study of human anatomy and surgery. He demonstrated the need for observations taken directly from human dissection. Until this time, medics’ understanding of anatomy was often based on monkeys or even pigs.
