Morbid Anatomy Museum T-Shirts Now Available!
A new batch of hand-silk screened, 100% cotton Morbid Anatomy Museum T-shirts are now available on the Morbid Anatomy Museum gift shop for only $20!
Shirts are available in all sizes, and are hand printed by local artist Mark Splatter with an image drawn from anatomical artist Frederik Ruysch's Opera Omnia Anatomico-Medico-Chirurgica of 1721. The image demonstrates, in the words of Ruysch scholar Daniel Margocsy, "a foetus, the size of a louse, hanging on its umbilical cord, with the placenta attached. The skeleton is a three-month old foetus, and, in its other hand, is also an embryo, the size of an anise seed." The illustrator behind this wonderful and iconic image was Cornelius Huyberts.
