Anatomically Correct Glass Sculptures


California-based artist Gary Farlow of Farlow's Scientific Glassblowing, Inc. combines art and science through the production of his anatomically correct glass sculptures. From the vascular system to brain and lung models, Farlow and his team of ten construct borosilicate glass structures representing the inner workings of the human body. With the addition of some tinted liquid being pumped through the translucent and hollowed out figures, one can even simulate blood flow or the passage of oxygen, making them ideal for teaching and learning. A full human body model with such meticulous detail doesn't come cheap though, costing at around $25,000.

If you like Farlow's anatomical glass sculptures, you should also check out Eric Franklin's similarly constructed glass skeleton.
