Does anyone else have a problem with this new Body Works display that is such the rage? For those who don’t know, it is a display of cadavers whose tissues have been preserved by infusion of a polymer, making the tissues appear life-like and not subject to deterioration. The bodies are posed as in action, such as running a football and riding a skateboard. Various layers of skin, muscle and bone are exposed so the parts of the body can be seen “in action.”
There is a story in the news of one of these “specimens”, a pregnant woman that exposes the baby in the womb, from which the “preserved” baby was stolen. That was a real living baby at one time (probably killed in an abortion).
Anyway, this is no different than having cadavers on display in large jars of formaldehyde like some kind of rare animal collection. Maybe I’m not “with it” but this seems disrepectful of the persons who used to live and breath in those bodies and it’s kinda creepy.
