"THE BODY WAS NEVER A FREE GIFT; it gives temporary shelter to our aspirations on a finite lease. We try to preserve and commemorate its tenure. In our age of increasingly narrow technology, we still begin with the body, the province of schools of art and schools of medicine, heirs to our first struggles against mortal limits."

~ Benjamin A. Rifkin, 'The Art of Anatomy', Human Anatomy: Depicting the Body from the Renaissance to Today
