Hippocrates at Kos

1989, 96 x 72″ (224 x 183cm)

A commission for the BC College of Physicians and Surgeons. It shows Hippocrates lecturing his students. (I added a woman though there were no women allowed to be doctors when he taught.) It also shows his grave on the island of Kos and the tree that grows there. Seeds from this tree have been planted at medical schools all over the world.
