Anatomical illustrations from Edo-period Japan


There's a fascinating set of anatomical illustrations from Japan's Edo period (1603-1868) on the blog Pink Tentacle. The set offers an interesting perspective on the state of medical knowledge during that time. And if you'd like to see how human anatomy was visualized in other parts of the word during that period, check out the photos of Italian anatomical waxworks on the Stanford Medicine Flickr photo stream (also available in 3D).
