Curiosity is part of human nature. Keys, doors, etc have been used as symbols of that curiosity. Without them, we are only presented with uncrossable obstacles. On the other hand, the human body is the first frontier that we encounter. When we are born, we need to start breeding and discover how the lungs work. Also, as we grow up, exploring the world around, gives us clues about our physical limitations. 

Sometimes, a good knowledge of our body is even vital. In this work, I try to represent parts of the human body (besides the brain) that are crucial to me: lungs, column, skin, ears, eyes, circulatory system.
