Plasticized Heart

Item ID: 2405 | Category: Anatomical

Plastination is a technique or process used in anatomy to preserve bodies or body parts, first developed by Gunther von Hagens in 1977. 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. This is a very rare chance to buy a real plasticized human heart complete with glass dome. The heart sits on a velvet lined base. It can be easily removed for further study. A true love gift for the collector that has almost everything. Dome measures approx 21cms high.
