I HEART anatomically correct things and I guess the heart is without question the most important organ in our body. Accordingly, I have spent a happy morning searching down the best anatomically correct hearts for this gallery.
Heart of Gold - This ‘heart of gold’ is from Fred Flare who also stock this in the traditional red colour. Probably the best gift around to show someone that they have a heart of gold. If you ignore the smiling face it is pretty well spot on biologically.
Heart Soaps - These are cool, but they would be cooler if they produced red foam (Which might defeat the object of the soap, but would totally rock).
Heart Vases - It’s always interesting to compare two different takes on the same concept.
Gummy Sweets - Proof biology can be fun - learn about the heart and then eat it. Yummy!
Candy Heart - This take on the concept is really effective. When I first saw the image from a distance I thought it was crochet and got really excited.
Heart Necklace - So cute! The locket design means you can put a picture of your loved one in it so they always have a place in your heart (sic). There are many other examples to choose from in the same vein but I think this is the best.
Heart Pudding - This is way too cool but I don’t think I would be able to stomach eating it, would want to, or would make one that looked like this. This comes from the ever awesome instructables site where you can find out how to make your own.
Heart Tattoo - What were they thinking! You might as well tattoo I am strange on your forehead. I am sure the artistic spurting of the blood is particularly effective when aiming to repel women.
Crochet Heart - This is by far my favourite example. There are also intructions on how to make one for you loved one.
Heart Cookies - You would have to be pretty messed to make these anatomically correct cookies. I guess that is why I love them :-) Technically the least biologically correct but, hey. it IS a cookie.
Wire Heart - This example comes from the blog of J.Kobvach who says, "This is my baby, a fairly anatomically correct human heart constructed out of galvanized wire. In the end, the veins and arteries will form a 12 by 12 cube."
Here ends part one of my quest to cluster the best anatomically hearts around. The exciting news is I have found so many awesome things I am going to do a part 2…
