Testicles on a Plate

20 Oct

So proud of my friend Emily Evans in producing this range of Histology plates.

Histology Cake Plates – Clockwise form centre: Testicle, Thyroid, Kidney, Bowel,
Oesophagus

In case you were wondering what Histology is:

The study of the microscopic anatomy of cells and tissues. Tissue sections are stained and examined under a microscope.

Michelle Spear, Clinical Anatomist at Cambridge University, (originally a Histologist) provided the original images for these plates to Emily, preparing slides of various human tissues which she then stained and scanned in for the project.

The plates are 19” bone china cake plates, available in 8 different human tissue designs.
