Handmade Coral Reef

On yet another visit to the National Museum of Natural History
to see the Brachiosaurus,
I saw this beautiful new coral reef exhibit and,
just when I got closer I realized they were crocheted corals,
The Hyperbolic Crochet Coral Reef,
project created by Margaret and Christine Wertheim
of the Institute For Figuring in Los Angeles.
You can learn more about the The Smithsonian Community Reef here,
and see more picture here.
Amazing, amazing work.
