    About

    This print is a visual record of the dissection of a chameleon in seventeenth-century Paris: one of a series of anatomical investigations of exotic animals at the time by the prestigious Royal Academy of Sciences. The dissectors closely supervised the production of detailed drawings and etchings by printmakers, such as this one by the Frenchman Abraham Bosse, to ensure that there were no errors. However they seem to have been permitted the use of artistic effects, such as the curling of the sheet of paper at the top of the design. The dissected parts show a progressive exploration of the animal, including the organs. The details show that the naturalists were particularly interested in the chameleon's rotating eyes and it's very long tongue.
