Foods that look like the parts of the body they nourish

In Medieval times, a theory called the "Doctrine of Signals" stated that medicinal plants resemble the part of the body for which they are therapeutic, (eg: lungwort has speckled leaves like lungs), and now I've found this picture (don't know where it came from, sorry)... I think it's self-explanatory.
