Anatomical Dainties: Rachel Harmeyer

We love these embroidered and embellished anatomical pieces created by artist Rachel Harmeyer.  If you’re in the Houston area, there’s currently a show of hers up at Backyard Moonshine Art Collective, and she’ll be exhibiting in as well as curating the visual art at the Houston Fringe Festival (August 30 – September 15, 2012.)  Thanks to Moshita for sharing these on Tumblr.
