Historical Wallin Preparations by Odra Noel

This is one of the images belonging to a series of historical mitochondrial works. I find the early biologists and microscope pioneers views, descriptions, drawings and photos extremely charming. I pride myself on the fact that my art is informed, as far as I can manage, on the current state of knowledge of its subjects. Some of these pioneers knew what they were looking at, others didn’t or were profoundly mistaken. Still, their images and descriptions speak volumes, and I pay homage to them in this series.
