Blood is one of the most recognisable microscopic images out there. And yet, it doesn’t look like this at all when you look at blood through the microscope. This image is a cross between what we can see, what we know is there, and an idealized view of how blood should look. Almost like a cartoon of a familiar image, something that you will never mistake for the real thing, but that is able to unleash in you the same emotions than the real image does. This particular piece is lost – it was destroyed by mistake.
