I was inspired to create this depiction in response to how people dread images related to X-rays and skeletons as this reminds them of sickness and death. With the correct use of colour and proportion I sought to challenge this idea and produce an drawing which is appealing to look at despite the underlying nature of what is being shown. All features, from the skull to the hand and butterfly are drawn using precise anatomical proportions thus complement the objectivity of my scientific theme.

This piece makes part of a category in my portfolio consisting of #art inspired by #science, particularly medicine, in an attempt to pull these two subjects together and break the stereotype of art and science being somewhat distant in society.
