EDITORS COMMENTS
This vintage print showcases the remarkable trephination evidence found in an Inca skull, providing a glimpse into the ancient practice of prehistoric brain surgery in Peru. The woodcut with a watercolor wash beautifully captures the intricate details of this historical artifact. Dating back to the 15th or 16th century, this illustration is a testament to the rich heritage and traditional practices of the Incas, one of South America's most fascinating civilizations. It serves as a tangible link to their advanced medical knowledge and surgical techniques. The image invites us to explore the depths of history and marvel at the ingenuity displayed by these native peoples. Through careful examination, we can witness how they skillfully performed trephination - a procedure involving drilling holes into the skull for therapeutic purposes. As we delve deeper into this artwork, it becomes evident that it holds immense archaeological significance. This Inca skull stands as an enduring symbol of human resilience and our relentless pursuit of understanding even in ancient times. Let this striking print transport you back centuries ago when medicine was still in its infancy but already making groundbreaking strides. It reminds us that our ancestors possessed wisdom far beyond what we may have imagined, leaving behind legacies that continue to shape our understanding today.
