Description (Abstract)

The title of these two sculptures is Latin for “the Medical Art” and they are comprised of historic texts from world medicine. Sanborn chose not to translate them into English and in some cases retained their non-Roman scripts. His theme of cryptic texts is also demonstrated in many of his other public works.
