The Human Anatomy Exhibition has been travelling around the world for a number of years, and in 2010 an exhibition visited Jakarta. The process of plastination was first designed and patented by Gunther von Hagens in 1977. This allows preservation of natural anatomical specimens and even whole bodies. The results are durable, realistic and aesthetic and can be used for teaching and research purposes, and, as this exhibition demonstrates, for general education.
We took all of our IB Biology students for the trip to FX mall. Currently, there is now an Amazing Animals Exhibtion in Melbourne, here. Hopefully, they will return soon to do an Asian tour for our next batch of aspiring Doctors and Biologists.
