It’s all a bit insane membrane. Plastination meets cadavers in another one of the slightly creepy Gunther von Hagens’ exhibition at the 02.

If you ever wonder what’s underneath the skin; what an aneurysm, stroke or heart attack actually look like, then this is definitely worth a visit. And it’s not remotely creepy, the bodies look more like plastic than flesh and bone.

As we’ve all learnt from Simba, it’s about the circle of life, people getting old and dying. Fortunately, there is a horse and perhaps more interestingly, a giraffe to provide some comic relief.
