"The Circle of Willis: A Tapestry of Cerebral Tributaries" is part of the Curative Design poster series, designed by Eleanor Lutz. This poster lists the various arteries known as the "Circle of Willis," a circulatory anastomosis that supplies blood to the brain and surrounding structures, named after Thomas Willis, an English physician from the 17th century. This poster depicts their relative locations on a map designed in the style of a medieval tapestry, as if these arteries were actually noble families with their own family crests. It's like Game of Thrones meets hemodynamics!
