A pirate from Body Worlds exhibit by Gunther von Hagens... #gunthervonhagens #bodyworlds #plastination

body worlds - a must see for science nerds.

Dr. Gunther von Hagens developed "plastination" which is a process designed to preserve the body for educational and instructional purposes. The steps involve embalming, anatomical dissection, removal of body fat and water, forced impregnation of polymer, positioning of the body, and finally, curing or hardening of the body. Hagens exhibits such specimens in his museums and worldwide exhibits called Body Worlds.
