Again.. every time we wonder what’s our source of beauty, the answer would be nature ! If you checked Professor Adam Summer’s great work you’ll notice anatomy at its top of beauty. He stains the fish’s skeleton to reveal the beauty that lies underneath the flesh.

How a creative and successful way to teach fish anatomy in my opinion. That’s what happens when art meets science. Realizing this relation in our lives, we will be able to enjoy everything around us as it will be interesting. That realization would disapprove the idea of science is boring or art is just fantasy! Appreciating nature and respecting it will open our eyes to beauty.

Adam Summers used two dyes – alcian blue to stain cartilaginous elements and alizarin red to turn tissue a shade of crimson. He then bleaches the fish to get rid of the black pigments leaving a snow white fish. The last step is placing the naked fish on a LED lit table to capture the beauty.
