The equestrian magazine Cavallo shows a plastinate of the equine hock (tarsal joint sagittal section) in its Mai issue. In the following months various insight into the horse anatomy will be shown in the horse magazine. All plastinates and anatomical photographs were done by myself. Similar specimens and prints can be ordered directly at HC Biovision.
