Illustrator, dissector, and physician, Dr. Frank Scali, created this piece inspired by the anatomical definition of anastomosis.
Scali says of his piece,
“The female portrays the superficial venous blood flow, the male depicts deep arterial blood flow. Together they form the complete circulatory system. Anastomosis is the term used in anatomy when two blood vessels connect and literally means to “open” or to “kiss.””
