Caption: Plastinated hand blood vessels. 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 blood vessels are preserved in the positions that they are found in in the body, forming the shape of the hand. Photographed at the 'Our Body' exhibition, in Lyon, France.
