Ten years ago, semi-professional artist Karen Norberg set out on a difficult task: to knit a scientifically accurate brain. With one year, lots of textbooks, and even more yarn, Norberg achieved her goal. Her true-to-life brain is now receiving ample media attention, including an article from Scientific American. Click here to read the story, or visit the Museum of Fabric Brain Art to see Norberg’s knitted brain exhibited next to other scientifically accurate hand-crafted brains.

    However it is amazingly accurate. And it must have been a pains taking effort.
