Each section of paper is rolled on something small and cylindrical like a pin or a drill bit. They are then arranged together in a collection to construct the larger image. The Massachusetts-based artist even builds her own handmade wooden boxes (which fittingly resemble coffin-type structures) to frame the works.

These paper-made anatomical studies are a brilliant way of turning something considered gory into a beautiful work of art.
