Back in the 1800s, if you got shot in the leg, it came off. Broke your arm? Let’s drink some whiskey and saw it off. Modern medicine has been well aided through anatomical drawings from centuries past. Kaibo Zonshinzu has not only drawn some of the most intricate, beautiful medical scrolls, but takes it the extra mile by depicting pain on each person’s face, as if they were a recently disposed-of corpse.

These drawings and scrolls are now kept at the Keio University Library. Over 83 still exist today and have probably made quite a few medical students cringe. I mean look at the dude above. Kaibo is almost as twisted as these Noggins are.
