    this is my favorite from those fiends:

    well also you might enjoy stufs from hundred years
    before that as well, here are some terms to search:


    Aristotle (ca. 384-322 B.C.). De Generatione animalium

    Galen (131-201 A.D). De usu partium corporis humani

    Pliny, the Elder (23-79 A.D.). Historia naturalis

    Avicenna (980-1037). Canon medicinae

    Albertus Magnus (1193-1280). Physica

    Pierre Belon (1517-1564). Les obseruations de plusieurs singularitez et choses mémorables

    Antonio Benivieni (1443-1502). De abditis non nullis ac mirandis morborum et sanationum causis

    Julius Obsequens. Des prodiges

    Konrad Lykosthenes (1518-1561). Prodigiorum ac ostentorum chronicon

    Konrad Gesner (1516-1565). Historia animalium

    Girolamo Cardano (1501-1576). Somniorum Synesiorum

    Jakob Ruff (1500-1558). De conceptu et generatione hominis

    Arnaud Sorbin, Bishop of Nevers (1532-1606). Tractatus de monstris

    Pierre Boaistuau (d. 1566). Histoires prodigieuses

    Ambroise Paré (1510-1590). Les oevvres de m. Ambroise Paré

    Johannes Schenck von Grafenberg (1530-1598). Observationum medicarum rariorum

    This in particular always made me giddy as a kid:

    Johannes-Georg Schenck von Grafenberg. Monstrorum historia

    Ulisse Aldrovandi (1522-1605). Monstrorum histori

    Fortunio Liceti (1577-1657). De monstrorum caussis

    Ulisse Aldrovandi (1522-1605). Musaeum metallicum

    Ole Worm (1588-1654). Museum Wormianum

    Frederik Ruysch (1638-1731). Thesaurus anatomicus

    Samuel Pepys (1633-1703). The Diary of Samuel Pepys

    Johann Friedrich Meckel (1781-1833). De duplicitate monstrosa commentarius

    would be nice if modern day artists would look back in time
    more than a decade to get inspiration for making 'monsters'
    instead of making crap- you know who you are!

    Don't forget Hieronymus Bosch! 1450 - 1516

    Just so weird and fascinating at the same time, what an imagination. Boy, I would've really liked to have met him! :shock: :razz:

    A demonic lady with a vagina dripping menstrual blood into the mouth of a snake... :lol: Any normal person would think "Well, that's enough Internet for me today!"

    Thanks so much for sharing, this is great inspiration for a series of demons I'm working on!

    And oh my goodness, Bosch... We just looked at his stuff in Art History class, especially The Garden of Earthly Delights. Can't believe all of that stuff came from his head! We spend a good amount of time pointing out weird/hilarious things in that one.

    There were other Flanders painters of his era that painted similar fantastic paintings of Hell and demons, but Bosch is understandably the best known. When I was a kid I had a teacher who said that he was crazy ... "whenever they let him out of his straitjacket, he'd paint." Later I learned that this popular belief was completely untrue. He was just working within the context of his very devout religious belief. Those paintings were probably terrifying in their day but as you say there are lots of details that are pretty funny today. One such detail is musical notation written across the buttocks of someone being tortured. A Spanish early music ensemble actually managed to perform the music on Renaissance instruments, calling the notation "Codex Gluteo." :)

    One thing I noticed about Bosch. He seems a little over obsessed with sticking things up people's butts.
