Body Worlds 2
Boston.com
The exhibition of human cadavers 'Body Worlds' has sparked controversy and curiosity. German scientist Gunther von Hagens, who created the show and developed the technique used to preserve the bodies, called 'plastination,' has included parts from people who had donated their cadavers to teach people about human skeletal, cardiovascular and other systems. The exhibition opens July 30 at the Museum of Science in Boston. At left, 'Drawer Man' is the fiercest reminder that this person is real, and dead, Globe critic Joanna Weiss writes.
