Self Dissections

24 Nov

A beautiful take on anatomical art from Danny Quirk and his series entitled Self Dissections (via who killed bambi).

Wax Syphilis

I would love to get to visit the Museum of Anatomical Wax but I guess, for now, I will just have to blog about it… Some background:

With cadavers difficult to acquire and preserve, wax models became important to students and practitioners of anatomy. They aimed to reproduce the human body in a form as complete and true to nature as possible. A mixture of wax from bees and other insects was used to make realistic models which were also fully pliable. Parts of the model could often be taken out to allow students to look inside, or manipulate individual parts. In some ways they were superior to real bodies as an educational tool, because specific structures or systems of the body could be highlighted (and, of course, unlike cadavers, they did not decompose).

As regular readers know I can not speak highly enough of Helga’s astonishing work, and am so exited she is taking part in The Edible Autopsy. Anyway she kindly sent me some images of her latest work to share with you all (the sheep head makes me feel sick). Helga Petrau-Heinzel ROCKS!
