‘There once was a famous physician’

Figure descriptions
Caricature-like drawing of an old man who is identified as a physician in the poem text. The physician is shown in profile view. He holds a mirror up to his face. In the mirror, a large hole is visible in the centre of the physician’s forehead. He lifts one hand up to his forehead and appears to examine the hole. There is a bird and a cat behind him; the bird is perched on a stand and the cat sits on the ground, shielding its eyes with its paw. A book that reads “ARISTOTLE” and “DE ANIMA” is propped up against a dresser. There are books, skulls, and a quill scattered throughout the room. 1/2 page.
