Skulls, lungs, and human hearts might not be the prettiest of subjects, but Japanese textile artist Hiné Mizushima turns human organs into delightful embroidery designs for her series of wearable brooches. Her Kogin Embroidered Anatomy Brooches were part of a themed exhibition in Boris Zakkaten gallery in Tokyo earlier this year, displayed together with a collection of body-inspired textile pieces from other artists.

Featuring brightly-colored embroidery yarn and beaded embellishments, Mizushima’s distinct, playful style transforms otherwise squeamish internal organs into stylized textile art that celebrates each body part. From a pretty, stitched heart to an embroidered pair of lungs, each oval-shaped brooch allows wearers to proudly celebrate the miracle of human life.
