Anatomical dissection of human bodies may be morbid for some, but there’s unquestionable beauty inside that artists, at least since Leonardo da Vinci, have been exposing for the world to see.
Dr. Frank Scali is a professional dissector, specifically holding a coveted title as one of Gray’s Anatomy dissectors, but he’s also an artist that combines his work and art.
A bit from Dr Scali from his site:
I aspire to produce work that will outlive me and live by the statement of Ben Franklin, “Either write something worth reading or do something worth writing”. Trained in science, I objectify uncertainty from a logical perspective. My artistic side allows me to reveal answers to scientific questions from an imaginative angle. With these character traits, I am able to weave within the web of the scientific literature.
By fearing what we are inside, there is little hope in accepting anything beyond ourselves. While I am receptive to the esthetic beauty that is available to everyone, I also attempt to reveal a greater beauty by understanding the wondrous design beneath the skin of the noble men and women who have donated their bodies to science.
