Be still our beating—well, you know. Illustrator Miguel Santiago, a.k.a. @trafart, published a jaw-dropping illustration of our core organ this morning, the latest in a series of hyperreal eyes, faces, and accessories. The crown jewel from his collection is an oil-painted gold Lego mini-figure, which makes our eyes pop and hearts race just looking at it.

Check out the gold Lego, gorgeous eyeballs, and more of his illustrations below:
