Behold the skeletal mount of Carlo Giaccomini, the great Italian anatomist. He stands guard over the wondrous anatomical collection in Turin, where he presided over the “Church of Anatomy.” Between his feet lies his brain, prepared according to his own instructions.He is a work of anatomical art, a defender of the faith, and a gorgeous aesthetic testament to the pursuit of empirical knowledge above all things.
