Body Works Exhibition

A shark without its skin!

This even-scarier-in-real-life shark is part of Dr. Gunther von Hagens' exhibition at the Natural History Museum in Londen. He is the creator of the most famous Body Works exhibition.

In the case of the shark above and the dog, he injected a red liquid resin into their artial network after the skin was removed. Because of a special process, in which water and fat are replaced, the specimens do not decay!

Sorry for the short posts lately, exam week is drawing closer! I promise I will be back with better posts after the exams! Should have enough time then ;)
