Huh? I don't understand your parenthetical comments after "Ha-kohen". Then again, I'm a bit inebriated right now....
Yum, hard cider. Alcohol! I think I need some food.....
I assume it is the question of whether a cohen can metameh himself by dissecting cadavers at medical school.
"Typical images"? I wouldn't say...
I can't tell when the first cohen (Toviah) lived, but the second picture is from the turn of the 18th Century.(And the first one look earlier to my eye based on the clothing and props). Dissections were not standard, or even common, in medical education even at that time, so no, it doesn't really answer that question.

Why were you drunk, were you coming from a yud tes kislev farbrengen?
Most certainly not -- I have no connection whatsoever to Chabad. I had simply gotten home, was hungry, found nothing to eat in the fridge, but merely some bottles of hard cider. So I drank that, on an empty stomach, and got a bit inebriated.
Who stole the cork to my lunch?
A friend of mine is a kohen and a doctor, but I think the story is that he became a baal teshuva only after choosing his career. My mother's uncle, a kohen, wanted to be an M.D. but settled on psychology instead. Ironically, he later went off the derech.When you think about it, if it weren't for those med school dissections, kohanim would be a natural fit for the medical profession -- at least dermatology (see Tazria-Metzorah).
