These meticulously embroidered anatomical treasures were created by Lyndie Dourthe. From fabric skeletons squiched into taxidermy display domes, so tiny embroidered knives with drips of blood on them, her site is worth exploring.

I’m addicted to this scientific antique site. Looking for that perfect antique surgical saw perhaps..? It’s all here.
These two images above are;
Anatomical model heart circa 1890
“A scarce signed and dated 1855 antique anatomical model of the human head by Auzoux. The model is oversized (18″ OAH) and termed greatly enlarged by Auzoux. The half of a human head is quite detailed and dramatic. First generation French Auzoux anatomical models are very desirable.”
“A detailed anatomical model of the human head in mid-section. The life-size model is by Auzoux, Paris, and so marked. It is in excellent condition and is mounted on a later base.”

Opening tomorrow is the new exhibition at the Wellcome Collection, Euston, London: Death, A Self-portrait (15 November 2012 – 24 February 2013).
I attended the Private view last night to get a provisional glimpse of the exhibition assembled by Richard Harris (the main contributor of works to the exhibition).
“the collection is spectacularly diverse, including art works, historical artefacts, scientific specimens and ephemera from across the world. Rare prints by Rembrandt, Dürer and Goya will be displayed alongside anatomical drawings, war art and antique metamorphic postcards; human remains will be juxtaposed with Renaissance vanitas paintings and twentieth century installations celebrating Mexico’s Day of the Dead” [from the site]
You can see a comprehensive selection of the artworks in the exhibition here.
