Rag and Bone

I don't remember what I was originally searching for on Google images, but I found this image and saved it in a browser tab to get back to later. (1) I love the image. It's an illustration by John Jude Palencar. (2) The picture accompanied a short story by Priya Sharma; I have not finished reading it yet, but I am enjoying it so far.

From the link:
“Rag and Bone,” by Priya Sharma, is about Tom, who buys unwanted household items and scavenges other materials (including bones) and resells them in an alternative 19th century Liverpool in which the wealthy use the poor for parts from the inside out, should they need them. Colorful, disturbing, and moving as Tom maneuvers warily between the masters he serves and the poor from whom he scavenges.
