Above are well-designed anatomical typography posters by Mattias Sjöberg. These would make a nice little V-day present or addition to your own art collection!  See his description below…

The inspiration for these posters came from the expression “to be beautiful on the inside”. And if you think about it, we really are! I live the organic but still graphical shapes of the organs and that there is so many feelings and associated with them such an love for the heart and intuition in the guts.
The posters are typographical pictures built with words associated with the hear and the lungs offset-printed om 170g paper and more are coming…

The Bolognese "Venerina," Anatomical Venus, Clemente Susini, 1780-1782

Posted: February 6, 2011 at 6:15 pm



The Bolognese "Venerina" is one of the more or less faithful replicas of the original model, the Venere dei Medici, that Clemente Susini (1754-1814) made between 1780-1782 in Florence. The agony of a young woman is represented in her last instant of life as she abandons herself to death voluptuously and completely naked. The thorax and abdomen can be opened, allowing the various parts to be disassembled so as to simulate the act of anatomic dissection.

A virtual dissection, to be carried out by lifting the movable layers or ‘pieces’ to reveal veins, arteries and internal organs. A young woman, the Venerina carries a foetus in her womb – to suggest the procreative potential of the female body – despite the total lack of any outward signs of pregnancy.

The alienating effect that the statue produces by combining anatomical detail, crude and repulsive, with a harmonious and sensual litheness, is the result of a precise scientific choice: sensitivity is an essential quality of matter; sensitivity – with its wide range of manifestations, including the sensuality of the Venerina who surrenders herself to death – lies at the core of the physical and physiological organisation of man.

From the website for the stunning Museo di Palazzo Poggi in Bologna, Italy where the Venerina is housed.
