Musculorum Tabula III, 1747

Musculorum Tabula III, 1747 РThis image by Jan Wandelaar (1690-1759)has always amazed me, particularly for his choice of background. This engraving was rendered for an anatomical syllabus by Bernard Siegfried Albinus, Tabulae sceleti et musculorum corporis humani. Why would Wandelaar choose a rhino for scale? Answer: Why not?
