Maybe it’s got to do with my obsession/anxiety over my own mortality but I’m a sucker for Anatomical imagery. These anatomical cross-section paper sculptures by artist Lisa Nilsson are pretty impressive.
Check it out;
“These pieces are made of Japanese mulberry paper and the gilded edges of old books. They are constructed by a technique of rolling and shaping narrow strips of paper called quilling or paper filigree. Quilling was first practiced by Renaissance nuns and monks who made artistic use of the gilded edges of worn out bibles, and later by 18th century ladies who made artistic use of lots of free time. I find quilling exquisitely satisfying for rendering the densely squished and lovely internal landscape of the human body in cross section.”
