Human anatomy is a fascinating thing and apparently there is something fascinating about wearing it also. I thinking especially of clothes with pictures or images that resemblance the human anatomy. As an example I often wear a T-shirt with a cranium on in. I don’t really know why or give it much thought. Really, it’s just a T-shirt.
Just now when I was searching for info on The Visible Human Project I accidently stumbled onto this website on The Visible Embryo. What really struck me wasn’t really The Visible Embryo itself it was the merchandise one could by from their online store entitled: Shop The Visible Embryo. Here one can buy T-shirts, aprons, a pregnancy timeline full colour tote bag or (my personal favourite) a birth spiral ceramic travel mug.
I’m not quite sure who the intended buyers are. Medical students? Pregnant parents-to-be? I guess that there really isn’t any difference between wearing a T-shirt with a cranium and a cap with a pregnancy timeline but somehow the latter sort of freaks me out and I don’t really buy the following statement: “Look cool on bad hair days or when shading your eyes from the sun”. Well, I most seriously doubt that.
