Anatomy Set in Stone is a series of 22 life size mosaics that replicate 16th century anatomical engravings in marble, stone and precious gems. This catalog documents the 13 finished mosaics as well as the 9 engravings remaining.

This book reproduces the mosaics side by side with the original etchings of Bartolomeo Eustachi’s Tabulae Anatomicae at the same scale. Prints of the mosaics are 13.5 inches tall, providing a much higher level of detail than images shared online. The wire binding lets the pages lie flat inviting easy comparison.

The mosaics are composed mainly of marble, travertine, onyx, limestone, blue and pink quartz. The eyes are black garnet and star ruby. The veins and arteries will be lapis lazuli and red jasper.

If you've been following the project over the last 8 years, this is a great chance to see the mosaics at a larger scale all in one place.
