Livers, eyes, and bone

September 20, 2012

The guys at the butcher think I am a nut. After thoroughly enjoying our pig heart lab I returned for calf liver, bone segments and eyes.

We examined the eyes. They are eery and evoke the pathos inherent in the death of each animal. Two of the eyes did not look “normal” and we wondered if their appearance reflected the age or health of their former owner.
