Really fantastic exhibition. Saw it in Chicago. As a nurse, I found it wholly fascinating. Could have used it during A & P!

We saw it in the UK when my sons art teacher organised a school trip for her students and parents were invited if interested
The exhibits are all 'posed' so very useful for anyone doing still life
It is a bit creepy though and quite a few people left early on as they felt they couldnt stomach it
It does go beyond scientific as he uses the figures as art forms too by the way he displays them

I agree that the way they're displayed is artistic, but that's not the primary reason the exhibitions were created.

I think they're fascinating, and unfortunately I don't think any of the exhibits will be coming anywhere close to me anytime soon.

I'd gladly travel to Washington DC to see them, and I won't willingly go to DC for much of anything!

If you're just needing the body in order to see how an animal's muscles might work when completely 'out' and not in control, why not ask to see a few casterations, floatings, or other small surgeries at a local equine clinic? They look pretty darned dead to me when they're totally knocked out, splat on the ground- and they're not dead ;) that means no rotting carcasses, no questionable dragging around of dead bodies, and no disposal issues later on.

Otherwise get pictures of the real thing and just replicate it...thats an art in itself ;)

Everyone in your life is meant to
be in your journey, but not all of
them are meant to stay till the end.

Somewhat disturbing. A dead horse is not a nice thing to see and why anyone would want one for "art" is beyond me. But each to their own.

Pish, some crazy, whacked out woman had an old horse that needed to be euthed, and she cut it open and was crawling around inside it while her SO took pictures of her doing it. Now THAT'S nuts, as well as disturbing and disgusting!
