Revealing the Symphony Within
The stunning new exhibition BODY WORLDS & The Cycle of Life is your opportunity to peer behind the curtain and see the concert inside yourself as you've never seen it before.
Your body is a symphony, with millions of finely tuned instruments, playing in perfect concert. As time goes by, age changes the instruments, both by design and in reaction to our own choices.
Making its Canadian debut, this new exhibition from physician and pioneering anatomist Dr. Gunther von Hagens presents the body throughout the human life cycle and across the arc of aging. More than 200 plastinates—real human specimens preserved through Dr. von Hagens' invention, the remarkable process called Plastination—reveal the human body in all its stages, across youth, growth, maturity and advanced age, and in all its conditions, from health to distress to disease.
Three Special Perspectives
This new exhibition features three special perspectives: a look at conception and pre-natal development; a display about sight and vision, including the vision challenges faced by artists Claude Monet and Edgar Degas; and a study of the geographic regions where the oldest living people tend to live, and the characteristics they have been found to share.
Visiting BODY WORLDS & The Cycle of Life is an unparalleled experience that will have you thinking and talking about your health, your vitality and the complicated wonder that is the human body.
