In a scientific breakthrough, trailblazing scientist Gunther von Hagens invented the process of Plastination. Plastination results in a highly preserved sample of human bodies or body parts that do not smell or decay, and retain most properties of the original sample. Gunther von Hagens developed and curated the samples himself, and has toured his samples to more than 50 cities worldwide- attracting more than 29 million visitors! The bodies are provided by donors who will their body to the plastination process, with the hope of contributing to scientific research and education for future generations.
The anatomy of the human body is truly fascinating, and as such it should be celebrated. While ogling these specimens, you’ll gain insight as to what really makes you, you.
