I REMEMBER SEEING THIS THING IN A YOUTUBE VIDEO YEARS AGO
the camera is all over the place but the music is loud and clear (also the room is darker than it appears in this picture and I WOULDN’T SAY THAT’S A KISS ON THE KNEES AT AL)
Every time I see these I’m like “How are these even real?!?”

Heart of Glass: The Art of Medical Models
Gary Farlow can make art out of arteries. He and his team of 10 at Farlow’s Scientific Glassblowing are able to transform the body’s vasculature—and nearly all of its other parts—into an ornate borosilicate glass sculpture, from the heart’s ventricles to the brain’s circle of Willis. “We do almost every part of the body,” Farlow says. “It can take a pretty artistic mind to make some of these things.” With the help of cardiologists, the team creates custom see-through systems for science and medical training. Their anatomically correct models can be designed to simulate blood flow, teach placement of catheters and angioplasty devices, or simply test or demo new surgical gizmos. Individual arteries, veins, and capillaries are shaped and fused together, one at a time. Ground-glass joints are added at the exposed ends so a head, say, can be connected to the carotid arteries should customers want to expand their model. A full-body setup could cost $25,000, so don’t get any bright ideas about using one as a brandy decanter.
these would look absolutely stunning in my foyer*
*author’s note: i do not have a foyer.
i was wondering the other day if this was a thing people could do. apparently it is and damn if it isn’t one of the coolest things.
Carved Tibetan skulls.
this is the coolest thing I have ever seen
please do this to my skull when I die
i was a bit suspicious of its authenticity at first, but apparently this is totally legitimate, it is something people actually did with human skulls just a few centuries ago (the original source—at least, what i think is the original source—says this skull is only about 300 years old). most of the other skulls that turn up on image searches are less intricate than this one but still have the same carvings on the mandible. a more common variation of skull carving is the kapala, which is only the cranium; if the skulls used for these works of art are sky burial remains it makes sense that whole skull carvings or rare because the mandible may be lost in a lot of cases.
whether or not this is a true antique or not though doesn’t matter much tho because it’s rad either way
