  • Anatomical Venus

    No it isn't Mary Kelly, even though she has several internal organs at her feet. It's an Anatomical Venus. The “Venerina” or “Little Venus” wax anatomical model by Clemente Susini, 1782. Photo by Joanna Ebenstein at, appropriately enough, The Whitechapel Gallery. Courtesy of the Palazzo Poggi, Bologna, Italy. 2010.

    Case solved: Clemente Susini was the Ripper! No need to worry about the technicality that he was dead in 1888!

        Who says he was dead in 1888. Whooh Whooh.

          These Venus works have been displayed since their creation. They may point to a cultured or well-educated man (Ripper). Or they show an interesting image that reflects sidimilarities to Mary Kelly's evisceration. Or demonstrate an artist's sometimes uncanny ability to imagine/create a future event. Think. Science fiction.

            Hi Bill

            I might be wrong, but I sense that it is mere coincidence that the slaughtered Mary Jane Kelly resembled an Anatomical Venus.

            Best regards

              Most likely. Still an interesting artwork in the art section thread.
