A real pig heart preserved through a plastination process.
It can also be hung by means of a hook.
Plastination is a conservation technique for (among other things) biological material that produces extraordinary preparations with very natural shapes and colours and a practically unlimited durability. The method was invented in 1977 by Gunther von Hagens, a German antomist who gained great fame through the exhibition Körperwelten which he composed of a large number of plasticized preparations, mainly of humans. This exhibition provoked a lot of controversy but was also visited by huge numbers of people.
Shipping well packaged and by registered post.
