The exhibition is running at the Natural History Museum in London from today April 6, 2012 until September 16, 2012. London has a wealth of museums and galleries and the NHM is sensational. A huge museum housed in a fine building it takes more than one day to fully experience what it has to offer.
So what about Animals Inside out?
The exhibition is the work of Gunther von Hagens. This artist is famous for stripping back people, literally. His work shows the human body beneath the skin and easy on the eye exterior. It is not for the faint hearted.
This new exhibitions treats animals in the same way. The Natural History website is carrying the information below regarding this exhibition:
"Animals Inside out goes more than skin deep, allowing visitors to strip away the flesh,and travel on an anatomical safari of the Natural World.Adapted from Gunther von Hagens' Body Worlds, our UK premiere of this exhibition features nearly 100 plastinated animals and capillary specimens displaying the intricate insides and inner workings of some of the world’s most spectacular creatures, from goats and giraffes to octopuses and ostriches.
