“Our Body. The Universe within” – one of the most acclaimed shows of the world opens on the 6th floor of “AFIMALL City”.
The goal of OUR BODY: THE UNIVERSE WITHIN is for exhibit-goers to leave with a deeper understanding of the body’s form and function and a stronger appreciation of the uniqueness of each of our individual bodies. The exhibit vividly transmits knowledge about the human organism displaying the specimens in an artful, compelling and dignified environment. Guests will connect on a very personal level with these human artifacts as they use them to better understand their own bodies.
OUR BODY: THE UNIVERSE WITHIN is a scientific, educational exhibit comprised of over 200 specimens that have been preserved using a method known as polymer impregnation. Polymer impregnation is a relatively new method of preservation whereby bodily fluids are replaced by liquid plastic, which is then hardened to create a solid, durable anatomic specimen that will last indefinitely.
Before coming to Moscow, “Our Body: The Universe Within” had successful runs in the U.S., Europe and South America; other parts of the collection are now on display in Florida and Nicaragua.
The exhibition will run in “AFIMALL City” until 10 January 2015.
