Stress Fibers hair – clip # 3

Here is the next piece in the series.  It was inspired by the following image, which unfortunately did not have a description.  While I cannot say for sure, the filaments labeled in yellow reminded me of stress fibers.

Stress fibers consist of actin microfilaments and act like tiny muscles inside the cell, allowing the cell to change its shape, contract, and migrate to its ultimate destination. The name “stress fibers” comes from the fact that these structures are often observed in cells that have undergone mechanical stress.

 

If you have a favorite image, I am more than happy to take custom orders and make a striking conversation starter for you!
