Still Life

Yikes! Forget plastics. Meet plastination.

Says the seller:

"Offer from HC Biovision, Dr. von Horst, Germany. We offer trial specimens and prints to promote the method of plastination and the use of plastinates in everyday life. For more information about plastination and real anatomical specimens contact me by e-Mail, phone or Skype. You can also find more information about plastination and my work at the HC Biovision website or the website of the International Society for Plastination.HC Biovision is an anatomical institute officially registered by the german authorities."

Says Wikipedia:
"Plastination is a technique used in anatomy to preserve bodies or body parts. The water and fat are replaced by certain plastics, yielding specimens that can be touched, do not smell or decay, and even retain most properties of the original sample."

I think I've heard enough.
