The Amazing Human Body...

Today I went to The Amazing Human Body" Exhibition... I'd heard about this exhibition which was all these preserved and cut up human bodies... I'd heard story of one body which had been skinned and was setup as if he was holding it (the skin that is)...

People had called it grotesque when I had told them about it, I wasn't sure how I would find it...

The two words I'd use to describe it are fascinating and gross! The vertical and horizontal slices of the body has to be seen, If you've ever seen the Cell with Jennifer Lopez (one of her best) it's something similar to what is done to the horse!

So I didn't see a body holding it's skin, but there was an exhibit of a person's skin. It's perspex cover had no base and so it was just sitting over the skin and moved when pushed... Well the skin was just touching all the sides so I gave the lid a little push to see what the texture of the skin would be... I thought it would be all dry and hard... But it wasn't it was springy... errr gross...

Any way... it was amazing... deffinitely a must see... but it was still gross...
