Auguste Rodin

A rendering of Rodin’s Left Hand of Eustache de St. Pierre, in which you can see virtual blood vessels and bone.

We love, love, love the idea of the newest exhibit on display at Stanford’s Cantor Arts Center. The exhibit diagnoses eight of the ten hands sculpted by Auguste Rodin. The hands were diagnosed by a Stanford School of Medicine hand surgeon for malformations and diseases. The exhibit combines the world of medicine and art in the most fascinating form.

Not familiar with Rodin’s work? Rodin was intrigued by the human form. Most of his sculptures consisted of hands or the naked form. There is something sensual and romantic about his sculptures but technical and meticulous as well.
