Iori Tomita - New World Transparent Specimens Fisherman-turned-artist in Yokohama City, Japan, Tomita creates art using the skeletons of various dead marine specimens, which he preserves and then colors with bright shades of dye.
I love this one of the chameleon. Japanese artist Iori Tomita transforms the scientific technique of preserving and dying organism specimens into an art form with his series, 'shinsekai [toumei hyouhon]' ('new world transparent specimens')
These are real preserved animals. They are soaked in chemicals until the protein in their bodies turns clear and then they are dyed.
