Lab, A Life-Size Crocheted Human Skeleton and Organs

Lab by Shanell Papp

“Lab” is a life-size model of a human skeleton and organs that was painstakingly crocheted by artist Shanell Papp. The Canadian artist spent 8 months crafting the sculpture by hand back in 2006. In the pursuit of realism, she used an actual human skeleton and anatomy textbooks as references. The sculpture even includes unseen details like bone marrow and half-digested food in the stomach. Papp talks about the project in this interview with Order of the Good Death.
