Trend alert: X-ray and ultrasound art
By Aimee Heckel
Art is in the eye of the beholder. And in this case, the beholder may very well be your doctor.
Radiant Art Studios says the latest trend is its fine art prints and custom gifts created out of X-rays and non-visible light spectra. This includes ultrasounds of your growing baby.
Instead of putting the small, flimsy print-out of your first glimpse of your baby in a scrapbook or memory box, Radiant Art Studios can personalize it with a name and frame it for your wall — or turn it into a Christmas ornament, T-shirt, clock, sun catcher — you name it.
Baby ultrasound T-shirts cost $30. Frosted glass ornaments cost $20.
X-ray art isn’t limited to the odd framed image of your busted tibia. Art can come from X-ray images of flowers, shellfish, toys and even in-tact body parts (imagine a colorful X-ray of a hand holding a flower, for example). As October creeps closer, the potential for Halloween skeleton artwork is limitless, too.
