Kawasaki has created a series of illustrations about what people would look like if they had the skeletal structure of certain animals and posed just like them. We bring you the drawings from the artist’s series about animal-humans. Enjoy the gorgeous pics. Watch the pictures and tell us which one you like the most. Also, don’t forget to share
There are two ways to transfer sound to the ear. First one is Air Conduction Sound and Second is Bone Conduction Sound. Dolphins in the water listen to sound through bone conduction sound.
The shells open when a shellfish is heated. The scallop is a muscle which closes the shell (closed muscle), and the shell opens when the muscle is loosened. When the shell is heated, the protein in the muscles changes and the adhesion between the shell and scallops is left, so the shell appears to open healthy and strong.
The artist compared the difference between bats and pterosaur wings in human hands.
If people had chests like pigeons.
In Greek mythology, this half-human and half-bird monsters called harpies have appeared, but the artist tried to draw this harpy with a skeleton base of a bird and a human body.
Elephants are so big, but they stand on their tip-toes, and camels stand more like ballerinas. However, they get support from a fleshy cushion pad on the sole.
The illustration of “Reproducing the bat wings with human arms” that the artist made a long time ago was wrong. What was wrong was that the metacarpal bone (the bone on the back of the hand) was part of the finger. The artist also drew “Illustration of Bird Wings with Human Arms.”
There are various environments on Earth such as grasslands, forests, mountains, sea, sky, and underground. The animals have adapted and evolved to their various environments, but the body parts that show the most change in adaptation are the “front legs” (arms). So the artist tried to draw what happens if the human arm is reproduced with the skeleton of various animal forelimbs.
There were many requests for a penguin skeleton applied to a human body.
Rabbits are always stooped, so it seems to put a lot of burden on your back when you stretch it.
Often, the foot of animals is mistaken for an ankle as a knee, so the artist tried to draw what would happen if the artist made the human foot the bone base of another animal’s foot.
The horse has ‘lost’ all its fingers except for the middle one due to evolution.
Flamingos often stand on one leg and sleep with one leg standing. The flamingo’s body shape is also extreme, so the artist drew an illustration of a flamingo skeleton if a human poses while standing on one leg.
The turtle’s skeleton is quite unique, and the shell is mostly made of a “thorax” such as a rib, with a scapula and pelvis in it. Based on this turtle skeleton, what would happen if you tried it on yourself?
