Collection of the artist

The mosaic is based on an anatomical drawing by Bartolomeo Eustachi, Italian anatomist, born ca. 1500-1513, San Severino, Ancona; died August 27, 1574. The dimensions are approximately 3 x 2 feet. There are links to the original art, as well as a whole library of antiquarian anatomy drawings on my previous post about this project. This was a prototype for a series of twelve mosaics based on Eustachi’s 16th Century Anatomical Engravings.
