I went and saw the Bodies exhibit in St. Louis when I was on vacation from school. It was a very neat experience. I'd LOVE to see the one with animals. :3

Very interesting!
Would love to see such an exhibit. Unfortunately, I'm too far on the east coast. It would be quite the drive.

This is a different group than Bodies, this is by Body Worlds which obtains their plastinates completely via donation. I just saw the human Body Worlds and would LOVE to go see this one!

Yeah, Body Worlds was developed by Gunther von Hagens and Bodies is run by someone else.

This German exhibit was one I was very interested in seeing. The plastinization process was perfected by the Germans, and was done such that the viewer of the bodies could observe them "in motion". In fact, one was riding a horse. Both horse and person were Plastinated.

Another was a person running, and there were many others... It allowed one to view what the body would look like while the parts were moving, so; lungs inflated with air, blood vessels dilated, and positions of all parts while in motion...one really awesome exhibit was the previously described, person on a galloping horse, with the skin on the person's back peeled upward, and then positioned and "plastinated" such that it appeared to be flapping out behind the person such as a cape would...the horse was "frozen" in full gallop (Plastinated), so one could see what the musculature would look like in that state.

It was considered by some to be grotesque, as they utilized the skin in an "artistic", & not purely scientific manner, though it was done as such to indicate MOTION, not to be OVERLY ARTISTIC or grotesque, etc...but I think it's cool and was very disappointed not to be in SF when they had the show at the MOMA there....then it stopped touring, I believe, due to negative press, however, I do not believe the German (original)show was the one utilizing Chinese prisoners (THAT WOULD be horrid and wrong, IMO)...

In fact, as I RECALL, (it was like ten years ago!) very clearly in fact, people were literally signing into a "lottery" situation to be given what they considered to be the incredible opportunity of being put into the show after the time of their death...they had something like 10,000 "applicants"! Anyhow, I don't know that the German (again, the ORIGINAL plastinizers) are even still touring. That display was considered by many to be the best and most absolutely "life-like" of them all...and, as they were faulted for, also had a creative "flair" to the show...I can't recall the German name for it, but it would only take a quick Google to find it I'm sure!

I've seen both actually. Bodies in Philadelphia and Body World in NYC. They did have the rearing horse which was really cool. And a few other animals. But it was mostly humans which was really really really fascinating!
