From Neuroscience to Knitting

I was browsing pictures of the brain for an upcoming presentation when I stumbled across this little gem!

‘The Museum of Fabric Brain Art’

Knitting, quilts and rugs all inspired by dissections and imaging of the brain! Its nice to see the arts and science coming together so neatly to produce some quite anatomically correct pieces of needle work.

There is also the ‘Gallery of Wooden Brain Art‘, which has carvings of the brain in Maple wood. These can also be made to order…what a lovely stocking filler that would be!
