A Homunculus

A 17th-Century depiction of a sperm as drawn during an era that was
smart enough to use a microscope and employ a scientific or empirical approach,
but still unable to cast off its infatuation with magical thinking.
This resulted in a fundamentally flawed and self-indulgent model of the world
--- one that would never get one hired in an Infertility/Andrology Clinic today.
