"Guido of Vigevano was an Italian anatomist, physician and engineer. He was the court physician of the French king, Philip VI, and is given credit for designing a windmill powered wagon (never built). In this illustration the artist combines an idealized impression of the ancient technique of trephination with a surprisingly modern rendering of the human bodies. This illustration is from Guido’s 1345 manuscript on human anatomy."
