Anatomy Vessels (Saplings) is a public sculpture created by Indiana-based artist Eric Nordgulen, Associate Professor of Sculpture at the Herron School of Art and Design. It was selected in 2005 for the Herron Gallery’s first Sculpture Biennial Invitational and exhibited in the Herron Sculpture Gardens. The two-part cast and fabricated bronze sculpture represents two-life size sapling trees with bound root balls. It is part of a series of Anatomy Vessel works by the artist referencing nature, but not intended to be functional.

The sculpture was on extended loan from the artist and was located outside of the north entrance to Eskenazi Hall on the Indiana University-Purdue University Indianapolis (IUPUI) campus. It is now in the artist’s possession.
