Ancient medicine combined the physical treatment of an illness with the spiritual assessment of its causes. A physician provides a cure for a wounded soldier. His spear and cowhide shield rest beside medical tools.
These tools include a jar containing pomegranate juice for closing wounds. A mortar and pestle are also on the shelf for grinding healing herbs and nuts. A statue of Amenhotep, the great ancient Egyptian physician, keeps an eye on the cure being made. The herbal cauldron is cooking medicine and giving rise to smoke.
