Body Worlds arrives in America
Wire Services |
"A pregnant woman lies on her side with a hand behind her head as if posing for a nude photograph. But her dead body isn't the only thing exposed. Her heart, intestines and 8-month-old fetus are visible as well. The woman was one of more than 200 people who donated their cadavers for use in Body Worlds: The Anatomical Exhibition of Real Human Bodies, which made its U.S. debut Friday at the California Science Center... the final exhibit includes 25 bodies that have undergone a process called 'plastination' in which body fluids are replaced with clear, pliable plastic. Most have been skinned or dissected to reveal muscles, bones, nerves and organs."
