The plumbing of plants.

Vascular plants (including flowering plants and trees) use specialized vessels to transport water and dissolved substances to and from every leaf, flower and root. Pictured here are a series of astounding stained microscope slides depicting cross-sections of plant stems; the darker lines are the walls of vertical, hollow columns in which water makes its journey around plants thereby allowing chemical reactions and life itself to take place. 

Microscopy and photography by Eckhard Völcker; definitely worth a visit.

Home is where the heart is…

…and when you apply this stunning anatomy themed wallpaper to your study/living room/love nest then the age old adage could not be more appropriate.

Aorta have this in the office but in the meantime, while I save up some pennies, bring your own walls to life by visiting the designer and retailer of these unique works of heart at the anatomyboutique

Heart + Lung dissection. Here you can see how closely the two organs are related. The blood from the heart gets pumped into the lungs, loaded with oxygen and then comes back in order to be pumped into the whole body.Also the heart has been opened in order to give view on the heart valves. Which valve is seen here? Give reasons for your guess! Found on anatomia.ru

Artist on Tumblr

Minghao Dong | on Tumblr (b.1983, China/France)

Minghao Dong was born in Inner Mongolia, China. Graduated from University of Dalian in 2008, Minghao works predominantly in the medium of painting but also engravings and installations. Gerard Richter has been the greatest influence. This new series of paintings is a reflection of the artist pondering on the properties of human, life and death in a time characterized by impatience, fragments, nihility, and a duality of highly developed civilization and disorder. Minghao Dong has had solo exhibitions in Dalian at Tianyi Gallery, and has participated several group exhibitions in China. He lives and works in Paris since 2009.
