Art and creativity inspired by Anatomy and Science
This exhibition is Body Worlds does Animals! Featuring nearly 100 plastinated animals and capillary specimens including Elephants, Gorillas, Giraffes (top), Sharks (middle – see info below), and Ostriches (bottom) to name a few. Animal Inside Out opens today 6 April 2012 until 16 Sept 2012 in the Natural History Museum, London.
‘Enter the exhibition and be drawn to the glowing red shark directly ahead. It looks almost unreal, but is a complete porbeagle shark that has had its skin removed to show the intricate blood system underneath. To display the blood capillaries in this way, coloured liquid resin is injected in the main arterial network. When the surrounding tissue is removed a perfect highway of vessels is revealed.’
