Ars Medica, a Mutter Inspiration

Ars Medica, mixed media
 ©2013 Julie Miller/HaggisVitae Studios
Inspired by a visit to the Mutter Museum in Philadelphia, this mixed media piece incorporates a real, vintage glass eyeball, a small mammal mandible, some gold leaf flakes, bird feathers, vintage medical book illustrations, all in a shadowbox. The Mutter is one of my most favorite places—intriguing, disturbing, enchanting, quiet, distressing, inspiring, and always interesting. If you have the chance and you're in Philly for a day, do yourself a favor and check it out.

If you're interested in purchasing this piece, contact me.
