Caption: Plastinated body exhibit, active 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 (dull red) and ligaments (white straps), and arteries (bright red), veins (blue), and nerves (white). The main internal organs shown are the heart, brain, lungs and liver. The black spots on the lungs are due to pollution or tar deposits from smoking. Photographed at the 'Our Body' exhibition, in Lyon, France.
