Check out these pictures from the Animals: Inside Out exhibit at the Perot Museum in Dallas, Texas. It’s a special exhibit with various animals including humans after going through a process called ‘plastination.’ Bodies are preserved and turned into plastic, making it possible to see anatomy of living things like never before. It was a fascinating experience to see the complex body systems that make up the diversity of life!
Above is a picture of an octupus. Below is the reflection of its underside.
Two giant squids with tentacles entwined.
I stopped and looked at the human leg for a long time, as well as the entire human body. I’ve seen human anatomy in books, but that’s it. My legs are frequently sore, stiff, and painful after seven surgeries on the right and one on the left. So, I found it fascinating to look at the musculature and try to ascertain which ones I feel aching from time to time.
Thanks for reading this entry. Peace out!
