THE METAMORPHOSIS OF THE POLYSAPIEN

Bio-Mythology and Anatomic Fabulation

“My mind now turns to stories of bodies changed
Into new forms. O Gods, inspire my beginnings
(For you changed them too) and spin a poem that extends
From the world’s first origins down to my own time.”
   - Invocation by Ovid in Metamorphosis

“The part always has a tendency to unite with its whole in order to escape from its imperfections.”
   - Leonardo Da Vinci
