An embroidered  lab coat for an evolutionary biologist .

After an interesting visit to an evolutionary biologist lab on the Isle of Mull, I have been working on motifs relating to 'aristotles lantern' a beautiful and complex bone structure from a sea urchin.  I found this on a shelf surrounded by interesting pale and chalky bones and elephants teeth. White on white embroidery seemed a perfect choice for a very neat and tidy biologist!
