Know thyself: Explore the complex and amazing universe that lives beneath your skin

 

From the eccentric museum La Specola in Florence comes this amazing collection of waxworks depicting human anatomy in all its dazzling complexity. A selection of wax bodies and body part and organ studies from the museums collection is presented here; from skeletons to vein structuresorgans to nerves, and arteries to the delicate pores of the skin, the human body is mapped out in meticulous and exacting detail. Texts explaining the human anatomy in laypersons terms and exploring thehistorical and cultural significance of the wax figures complete this “total body experience”.

About the Author

Monika von Düring is Professor Emeritus of Neuroanatomy at the Ruhr University in Bochum, Germany. Her brief medical explanations help to guide both lay-reader and medical expert through this graphic encyclopaedia of anatomy.

Marta Poggesi is a biologist, and was curator of the museum La Specola from 1969 to 2009. Parallel to research projects, she managed and catalogued the museum collections, to which the anatomical wax bodies and parts belong.
