The Wandering UterusKriota Willberg
"The Wandering Uterus (Furor Uterinus) and Contemporary Applications of Ancient Medical Wisdom" by Kriota Willberg
This "parchment," full-color mini comic explores a diagnostic standard of women's medicine that was honored by the medical profession, across the (known) world for millennia! Learn about the scope of diseases caused by the wandering uterus! Learn ancient treatments of this malady! Witness one woman's (my) attempt to use this ancient wisdom for her own symptom relief!
The inspiration for this came from the book Perilous Chastity by Laurinda S. Dixon. She has a fascinating list of publications in her CV. I think Perilous Chastity is a must-read for anyone interested in the history of women's health and art.
