We’ve seen a variety of awesome crocheted items, mostly hats and amigurimi based on fictional characters. But artist Shanell Papp is more interested in real human beings. More specifically, what’s inside of us. Back in 2006, Papp crocheted LAB, a life-size skeleton with organs.
In an interview with Order of the Good Death, Papp mentioned a variety of reasons why she made LAB. She says that she’s into “death, medicine and horror”, and growing up was very curious about what our insides are like and what each part does. Aside from looking at anatomical textbooks, Papp actually borrowed a human skeleton to use as a reference when she was making LAB. All in all it took her 8 months to finish her work.
