The appendix is a curious body part, one whose function and reason for existence is unclear--kind of like some people. So it's no wonder that artist Aksiniya chose the appendix as the body part to personify for the little monster you see above.

Aksiniya's 'Appendix Mnstr' is, well, frightening. This pucker-faced goblin is one I hope I never meet in person. Check out some other body part-inspired art pieces below.
