Vintage Plasticized Heart

Item ID: 2748 | 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 beautifully mounted human heart stands 22cms tall and would be the prize of any curio collection. For serious collectors only. rn
