The cardiovascular system and principal organs of a woman


RCIN 912281

This magnificent drawing combines a range of material – Leonardo’s findings from his dissection of an old man in Santa Maria Nuova; ancient beliefs such as a seven-chambered uterus; and observations from animal dissections, such as the large uterine ligaments, extending to the flanks. Leonardo then pricked through the sheet to use it as a template for further drawings.
