Shambala: Anatomical Life Drawing
The marvelous Evy Jokhova came along to Shambala for a life drawing class with a twist. For a unique blend of art and science, we asked her to illustrate our model’s anatomy for the audience, painting her circulatory system, heart, lungs, spine and digestive system directly onto her naked skin.
The fabulous Dr Denise Gomez, MD, joined us to explain the physiology of love: how hormones like oxytocin can muddle the mind, what is responsible for that feeling of butterflies in the stomach and weakness in the knees, and how the sight of that special someone can leave us literally breathless.
See the full selection of pictures on our Flickr site.
Shambala marks the third time we have hosted this event – see more pics of our anatomically illustrated models from the Lost Lovers Ball at Battersea Power Station in February 2011 here and here, and at the Secret Garden Party in 2011 here.
