Do Not Want: A Picture Frame Made Of Placenta

January Jones and other new mothers have been known to eat their placentas or swallow them in pill form, to the disgust of some. For those who don’t want to go so far as to ingest this fetal organ but still want to memorialize it, artist Amanda Cotton presents another option: a placenta picture frame. The 25-year-old, who says she’s received “positive feedback” on her frames, puts dried and crushed pieces of new mothers’ placentas in resin molds to create truly one-of-a-kind mementos.

“The placenta is one of the first creations the mother and baby make together, so why not celebrate that with a keepsake?’ said Cotton.

I don’t know that I have a good answer to Cotton’s question, I just know I don’t want my amniotic sac on display in my living room. [Metro UK]
