"Slice" Basilar Membrane

acrylic and fibers on Hardbord 12" x 12" “Slice” depicts a photomicrograph of the cochlea. I have enhanced its beauty by creating texture, warmth, depth and contrast. In this preparation we can see some (sparse) nerve fibers of the osseous lamina striding their way toward the medial wall. Also visible is the organ of corti area which is the lightest colored band running near the outside of the turns. This view is available by dissection.
