Roberto Osti creates medical illustrations from a fantastical other world, pulling apart fauns and werewolves and searching for biological seat of the soul.

That's "Deconstruction of a Werewolf" above. Also worth checking out are Osti's gorgeous illustrations of the natural world, many of which have appeared in Scientific American.
