1926 poster depicts human as a chemical plant

"Man as Industrial Palace" was created by Fritz Kahn in 1926. A high-res scan is available from the "Dream Anatomy" gallery of the National Institutes of Health.


Kahn's modernist visualization of the digestive and respiratory system as "industrial palace," really a chemical plant, was conceived in a period when the German chemical industry was the world's most advanced.
