Human placenta. Coloured scanning electron micrograph (SEM) of villi in the healthy placenta of a woman at the time of childbirth. The placenta is the temporary organ that connects a developing foetus to its mother. The villi, projections of foetal tissue into the maternal part of the placenta, are packed with blood vessels, allowing the foetus blood supply to come very close to the mothers blood. This allows the exchange of gases, nutrients and waste with the mothers blood, as the foetus cannot breathe, feed or excrete while in the womb.
This photographic print leverages sophisticated digital technology to capture a level of detail that is absolutely stunning. The colors are vivid and pure. The high-quality archival paper, a favorite choice among professional photographers, has a refined luster quality.
