Paper Anatomy by Lisa Nillsson

Artist Lisa Nillsson creates beautiful anatomical cross sections of the human body using rolled strips of paper, a technique known as quilling or paper filigree. Quilling was first practiced by Renaissance nuns and monks who made artistic use of the gilded edges of worn out bibles, and later by 18th century ladies who made artistic use of lots of free time. Lisa says: "I find quilling exquisitely satisfying for rendering the densely squished and lovely internal landscape of the human body in cross section."
