About this Print

The Hippocratic Oath is an oath historically taken by physicians and other healthcare professionals swearing to practice medicine ethically. It is widely believed to have been written by Hippocrates, often regarded as the father of western medicine.

The original of this print was written on Vellum (animal skin) with illumination in 23ct gold and black gouache.  The calligraphy was written in Sumi (Japanese ink) and the title Oath of Hippocrates was written in gouache.  If you are interested in commissioning an original Hippocratic Oath, please contact Dave.
