Sapphira McBride, Artist

Our friend Sapphi showed us her beautiful drawings and she gave us permission to put them on our blog. She said they were inspired by Lush Designs. We were so flattered - in many ways we think her work is superior - check out the curly whirly whiskers on this creature. Guess what - she's only 9 years old!

Exquisite Body

We visited the Wellcome Collection in Euston on Sunday. We were captivated by "Exquisite Bodies", a wonderful and sometimes grotesque exhibition of anatomical models. This German ivory model of a pregnant woman is only a few inches long and perfect in every detail. The carved lace pillow is particularly wonderful. The artist couldn't resist including this detail, which is scientifically unnecessary yet lends a touching humanity to this depiction of the unfortunate cadaver.
