The Amazing Human Body Exhibition

October 10, 2006

Today I visited the Amazing Human body Exhibit. It’s quite amazing to see such well preserved bodies up close.

I wouldn’t call myself a generally squeamish person, but it’s hard reconcilling respect for the dead as you’re peering at their naked body from a few cms away.

The highlight for me were the tubular castings, where the veins/arteries of an organ are protected with resin and the surrounding flesh is removed, leaving just an incredibly detailed, beautiful piece of art.
