Bodies, the Exhibition

Went to BODIES, the exhibition, down at the South Street Seaport. Remarkable. A med-school student's study-haven. Words can't justify the likes of this exhibit. Nor do these pictures. But they're pretty good!

Here are some professional pictures taken off the internet. Some were taken at the exhibition down in Tampa, FL.

This one is a definite favorite of mine. Because the muscles are peeled away from each other, you can see exactly where the origins and insertions occur.
This guy is split apart down the middle! And what's amazing is that it's all symmetrical. It's a cool shot because you can really see all of the organs well and how each fits together. You can also see just how gigantic the liver is compared to the rest of the organs.
