A single skeletal muscle contains hundreds of thousands of individual fibers that are stretched in long rows, an anatomical fact that the textile artist is behind it Embroider restores itself in an unusually convenient way. The artist, based in Shropshire, England, sews precise embroidery of the human body, defines circular systems with winding threads, transfers the different layers of skin with sparkling pearls and translates the spongy substance of the brain into thick, swollen pockets.
