Has anyone seen this? I went to see it the other day from the perspective of someone who has taken both general anatomy and [currently] a cadaver dissection course and I have to say I was amazed. It definitely helped that I knew the names of the parts of the body displayed and I ended up staying for hours.
I can definitely understand how it would be controversial, but it provide amazing insight to the general public of how intricate the human body really is. I've watched some videos on the process behind constructing the human displays and my jaw was dropped the entire time.
yea, i agree. Fascinating and disturbing at the same time!
