Big Bear - MattiaMercante

Continuing the theme of prints inspired by nature, user MattiaMercante printed this amazingly detailed 35cm tall bear rearing up on its hind legs. It’s so realistic that it almost looks like it’s about to jump through your screen.

Blood Vessels and Neurons - SungWooChoi and EyeWire Labs

And last, but not least: two amazing examples of accurate, realistic models of the hidden structures of the human brain and nervous system.
