Dr. Gunther von Hagens plastinates the “crucified Jesus”

posted in: Ethics, Exhibitions | 4

The German Newspaper “Augsburger Allgemeine Zeitung” reported on the 14th of April 2012 that Dr. Gunther von Hagens recently finished plastinating the “crucified Jesus”. The specimen, which is a combined bone- / blood vessels preparation, shall be carried over the alps all the way to Rome. You can find the German online article here: http://www.augsburger-allgemeine.de/wissenschaft/Gunther-von-Hagens-Jesus-am-Kreuz-als-letztes-grosses-Werk-id19564271.html.

The article also shows a picture of the “Sitting Act” plastination from Dr. Gunther von Hagens. The city of Augsburg did not allow the presentation of this “Sex-Plastinate” in the context of the Bodyworlds exhibition in the past. The Augsburger Allgemeine had also published an article about my own plastination of animals a while ago.
