Comparative Hearts in Resin
The Heart is the central organ in the circulatory systems of all vertebrate species. It is a muscle distinguished from other muscle groups by its distinct cell structure. Although Hearts have different structures depending on the animal to which they belong, they are all responsible for circulating blood through veins and arteries, carrying oxygen and nutrients to every part of the body. Through human culture, the Heart has variously been regarded as the seat of the soul, life, reason, thought, and emotion.
This comparison includes Hearts from five different animal classifications: Fish, Amphibian, Reptile, bird, and mammal. It allows you to see in detail the structures of the heart and similarities and differences between different animal types. These specimens are set in transparent lucite resin, making them a great educational display or an unusual decorative piece!
