Paper Torso with Removable Organs

Horst Kiechle has created an entire torso, with removable organs, entirely out of white card! Called Paper Torso, the geometric sculpture has a heart, lungs and intestines, and more which you can see at all different angles, below. It was made for the Science Lab of the International School Nadi, Fiji.

The Australian architect is most known for his "archisculptures," where he takes paper and card to create intricate models and prototypes that are a cross between architecture and sculpture. Fascinating.
