Quilled Paper Anatomy
Lisa Nilsson created this incredible piece of art, known as ‘quilling’, using Japanese mulberry paper. Beginning with a photograph, she used cylindrical items including pins, needles, dowels, and drill bits to provide the required size of the anatomical sections.
It is reported that quilling was first practised by Renaissance nuns and monks who used the gilded edges of worn-out bibles.
