Jon Zahourek, Anatomist

Jon Zahourek has been committed to the study of anatomy for nearly fifty years. Endowed with an artist's ability to examine the world from a unique and original perspective, he has realized and contributed innovative and profound insights into the nature of the human body and mind as well as into the field of anatomy. The beauty of human form and function came alive for Jon through painting and sculpting the human body. It was through his artwork that Jon quickly discovered that anatomy only made sense in its zoological context. As a result of this discovery he set out to develop his interpretations, uniting anatomy and zoology in a truly extraordinary way.
