Special Medical Exhibit

I came across quite a special medical exhibit on BoingBoing featuring fascinating images and ancient medical gadgets:

There’s a fascinating exhibit at the Mori Art Museum in Tokyo right now called Medicine and Art: Imagining a Future for Life and Love. It showcases 150 works of art that represent our fascination with the human body, both as a living machine that we’re constantly trying to understand and as an artistic medium. The iconic example of this is Leonardo Da Vinci’s cranium drawings from the 15th century (pictured right), part of the Royal Collection belonging to Queen Elizabeth II.
