I think one of the reasons I'm fascinated by human bones is because it's hard to comprehend that I've got them inside my body right now. Every once in a while, I like to really ponder that reality. I mean, I'm sitting on my pelvis right now. It's very weird, somehow. Does that thought give you shivers, too?
This is Figure 19, "Pelvis," from the 1857 Hydropathic Encyclopedia. A beautifully creepy addition to any wall or bookshelf, especially if you love art that makes you pause.
Hand embroidery. Single strand thread on cream cotton, in a 6-inch, hand-painted wooden hoop.
