Beautifully cut out paper organs by Ali Harrison

The internal organs of the human body serve as an inspiration for many artists. Ali Harrison uses just paper and a X-acto knife to create her own tribute to the perfect engineering work that the organs actually are.

Her work is delicate and takes a lot of patience, since she draws the general outlines and then freehandedly cuts the internal shapes, a tiny bit of paper at a time. She says that she doesn’t really know what her pieces will look like until they are finished.

Each organ takes from 20 to 60 hours to complete, which isn’t strange considering how complex some of these beautiful designs are. In her gallery/store, she sells some of the originals, and also lasercut reproductions in other materials.

Check out her gallery shop here.
