Paper Torso with Removable Organs

Horst Kiechle has created an entire torso, with removable organs, entirely out of white card! Called Paper Torso, the geometric sculpture has a heart, lungs and intestines, and more which you can see at all different angles, below. It was made for the Science Lab of the International School Nadi, Fiji.
