Caption: Plastinated body exhibit, in a chess-playing pose. The technique of plastination conserves dead bodies by replacing water and fat with plastic. The technique preserves detailed anatomy, so the bodies can be dissected and put on display. Here, the dissection has revealed the muscles, nerves and bones. The dissection of the head has revealed the brain, which is used to play games such as chess. Photographed at the 'Our Body' exhibition, in Lyon, France.
