My rendition of an old medical drawing of the human heart

I haven’t posted anything since the visit to the retinal specialist. My husband had some issues arise from that and one of the issues led us to the cardiologist’s office. He had a beautiful old poster which I wanted to steal right off the wall. I could only take a quick picture of it and try my hand at a medical drawing. My conclusion: I’m no Frank Netter. Still, it was fun to try even though it’s just colored pencil. I’m fascinated by the chordi tendinae, those jellyfish looking things that support the valves of the right and left ventricles of the heart. The heart is a miraculous pump supplying blood throughout the body. P.S. He had an echocardiogram and it was normal.

    Honestly I am crazy about this kind of drawing. It just pulls me in. I’ve studied the heart a bit and it is endlessly interesting. Nice work!
