Body Worlds Exhibition in Tampa, Florida

3/07/2009 05:57:00 PM ·

Good evening blogger folks. I just got back from Tampa, and the traveling exhibition of "Body Worlds: The Original Exhibition of Real Human Bodies".

After a long week of midterms, one of those being ANA II on the heart, arteries and veins, I thought I would further stimulate my over-exercised mind.

The cadavers were displayed in such a form that every muscle and structure was exposed, revealing the beauty of our unbelievable bodies.

Gunther Von Hagens, the creator of "Body Worlds", has displayed these "anatomical exhibitions worldwide for over 10 years in over 46 cities across Asia, Europe, the United States, and Canada."

As a student, I found it to be both educational and a true distinction between art and form. I thoroughly enjoyed the heart display, one in which I knew back and forth before attending the exhibition.

The entire experience was even more gratifying when the walls revealed such wonderful pieces of prose, paired with the movements of the bodies.

"Anatomical dissection gives the human mind an opportunity to compare the dead with the living, things severed with things intact, things destroyed with things evolving, and opens up the profoundness of nature to us more than any other endeavor or consideration."

-Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
(1749-1832) German Poet
