Re: Hannibal Lector is sculpting now?


Artists like DaVinci, Michelangelo, Carravagio and the like who may or may not have done anatomical studies on human cadavers would have done so in direct violation of law set by the Catholic Church. Violation of such law could have led to excommunication, death or both. The quest for knowledge made these artists exceptional for their time because they were willing to risk the consequences of going beyond the accepted norm.
