It’s a crochet piece to die for.
Back in 2005, artist Shanell Papp finished work on a life-size, anatomically correct crochet skeleton, complete with removable organs such as a plush heart and winding intestines.
The skeleton was created for an open research project on textiles, anatomy, and art, called BAWDY.
It took eight months to finish and was eventually put on display on an actual mortuary gurney.
“I made the skeleton, in order to explore my body while I was an art student at the University of Lethbridge,” Papp told Design Boom.
“Before making this work I had a keen interest in medical history, Frankenstein, enlightenment thinking, the Victorian period, the birth of industry (textile production), crime investigation, mortuary practices and museums.”
