According to Wiki, quilling is “an art form that involves the use of strips of paper that are rolled, shaped, and glued together to create decorative designs”. Well, I think Lisa Nilsson has taken this otherwise tame hobby a little too far.
How insane are these anatomical cross sections?
Each piece is painstakingly assembled starting with an actual photo of a anatomical cross section. Several weeks and a ton of coloured paper later, Lisa produces what has to be the most amazing paper sculpture I have seen in a long while.
Lisa’s “Tissue Series” is made from Japanese mulberry paper and the gilded edges of old books – she even makes the detailed boxes that these anatomical masterpieces are displayed in. Truely amazing!
