Brick Heart

Written by Valentina on . Posted in art, stuff, toys

Brick artist Nathan Sawaya is the autohr of this amazing anatomical heart:

“I created an anatomically correct human heart for the Rady Children’s Hospital of San Diego. A piece like this is a great tool to help doctors talk to young patients about their own hearts. Hopefully kids will relate to a heart built from a medium that they are familar with.┬áIt took me nearly 100 hours to create this heavy heart, weighing in at 35 pounds. The typical human heart weighs about 10 ounces, so this heart is a bit heavier. It also causes more heartache when dropped on one’s foot.”
