Frontispiece for Thomas Bartholin’s Anatomia Reformata
Titian, Flaying of Marsyas 1575-76
Marsyas foolishly challenged Apollo to a music contest, both agreed the winner could punish the other however they liked, obviously Apollo won and had Marsyas taken to a cave and flayed alive, his skin was then nailed to a tree.
Thats what you get for challenging a God.
Michelangelo’s, Last Judgement
St Bartholomew displaying his own skin with the face of Michelangelo.
