Speaking about the embryo is inseparable from the conceptions of life and nature that culture provides. These abstractions and theories are contained in cultural narratives in which the embryo floats, like in a womb. It is impossible to talk about the embryo without recourse to such narratives and it is impossible to fully understand the ‘story’ of the embryo without taking into account that these narratives have plasticity. Editor’s note: In this article, art and science are interwoven. The author offers a lyrical discourse, a survey of the historical and academic origins of our current understanding of the human embryo. I thank the author for allowing our imposition of footnotes, in service to our diverse readership.

ABSTRACT Structure is a dynamic, developmental movement. An embryological perspective can contribute to our understanding of structure and can provide us with insights into the practical work of structural integration. Development and differentiation follow lawful principals and what is described in the brief article below in respect to the organization of the foot is relevant to arm or hand development as well.
