Bartholomaeus Anglicus' "Man [Body and Soul]l"

Nationality: French
Born/Died: 1203-1272

Media: Gold (?) and tempera (?) on parchment (?) or vellum (?)
Location: Les Mans, France

Considering that it was made during the Dark Ages, and despite it's technical awkwardness, this is a surprisingly upbeat view of man.
