Configuration of the Arteries of the Head and Brain

Body Worlds Exhibition The exhibition features approximately 200 authentic human specimens, including whole bodies, plastinated individual organs and transparent body slices that have been preserved through the process of Plastination, a technique that replaces bodily fluids and fat with reactive plastics. I had already heard of and seen some pics of this exhibition some time ago, but it's still amazing. They should bring it to Holland one day!

Wow, that picture of the brain is impressive.
There already is an exhibition of plastinated bodies in The Netherlands: Dutch site, English site
It lasts till the 14th of April.

Cool! Anyone willing to go to Amsterdam, smoke a joint or eat some mushrooms and go look at human bodies without skin? It's 16euro for students.

my girlfriend have bin there (in the beurs van berlage.

Enkele dingen die ze er over zij:

feutisen vond ze zeer de moeite waard.
Veel onderdelen in plakjes gesneden, wel een paar mooie 3d modelen.
Je ziet dingen op de reclame die er niet waren.
Het was leuk dat het echte mensen waren maar ze vond het voor de rest niet veel toevoegen aan de neppe poppen die iedereen kent.
Vond het erg duur voor de 16 euro die ze er voor lapte voor de 2 uur die ze zich daar vermaakt had.

Ik ben er zelf nog niet geweest maar lijkt me wel intressant.

2 hours is not bad for a museum. Was she really disappointed or might it be worth it?

I sure can't be more dissapointed after my 5euro visit to the Dead Man's Corner Museum in Normandy(near Carentan).
