Christoph Jamnitzer
The creatures in these drawings appear equally as ornaments or patterns brought to life. The spiral shell motif is repeated through most of the creatures giving everything a bizarre snail like appearance. If I ever manage to get a copy of this book I will scan every picture in it and make a worthy gallery of this artist. Until then, here are 6 incredibly large detailed images from Jamnitzer's peculiar imagination.
