statue faces statue face

Within every bone is a story, the hidden echo of a long past life. Bones bear the traces of the life experience of an individual, of a community, of a people. They help us to reconstruct dramatic events, and even to reveal the face of one of our ancestors. At the University of Siena, in Italy, anthropologist and anatomical illustrator Stefano Ricci Cortili devotes his life to this special kind of archaeological research. The knowledge he has gained has already brought to light many secrets, hidden within bones.
