Headline : Knit One Dissect One; Woolly Creations are Perfect for Biology... Almost!
Caption : Perhaps if schools made us knit these in biology we’d better remember the subject of anatomy!
Created by artist Emily Stoneking this series of dissected knits are made weaving guts and wool into fantastic (mostly) anatomically correct, partially dissected, works of art.
“I take a lot of artistic liberties,” Emily Stoneking told Bored Panda. “I do spend a lot of time researching real anatomical structures, and my guts have evolved over time (they used to be pretty blobby and random). But now, they really look very human, which I have found people tend to gravitate to.”
Stoneking also added that "The real deal is pretty messy and there are not a lot of distinct colours, and I want it to look more like an anatomical illustration (albeit an inaccurate one)," added Stoneking "I have begun moving toward more human based two-dimensional felted pieces, which I do aim to make very anatomically correct.
“The question I get asked most often is: ‘Are you a scientist?’ And the answer is a resounding, no! I have a historian’s brain, not a scientist’s brain, I'm afraid."
