The detail of the fish head vascularisation demonstrates how the transparency of the sheet plastinate can show the whole complexity of the blood vessel anatomy in one single anatomical specimen. You can also find this picture and many more in the plastination-archive.
A closer look shows details of the bird anatomy, eg. size of eye and cerebellum in comparison to the cerebrum.
The plastinate shows the beauty of the anatomy. This encourages to step closer and take a look at unexpected details.
this is the new blog “Plastination – Anatomy – Embedding” with information about plastinates, preparation techniques, Anatomy exhibitions, ethics in anatomy, etc.
