Anatomy diagrams and scale models could never do justice to the living breathing thing. That’s why Gillian Higgins paints the skeleton and muscles on her white horse, in essence turning the horse inside out. It’s so much easier to get students to pay attention to a text book that neighs when you count its thoracic vertebrae. The whole process takes about 4 hours with water based paint but the result is well worth it. We wonder if she has any Halloween plans with a painted skeletal horse or if it’s strictly for educational purposes.
