Bodies: Cuerpos Humanos Reales in Lima 2018

Date: Saturday, 01 December 2018 - Sunday, 09 December 2018

Bodies: Cuerpos Humanos Reales, the most visited exhibition in the world that showcases real human bodies and body parts that have been preserved through a process called plastination, is coming to Lima.

The exhibition takes place at the Jockey Plaza Mall, were 8 complete human bodies, eight torsos and more than hundred healthy and damaged organs will be on display. New technologies and special lighting allow visitors to see and understand the structure and functioning of our organism in detail.

The bodies are prevented from decay by means of plastination, a rubberization process patented in the 1970s by anatomist Gunther von Hagens. The essence of the process is the replacement of water and fatty material in the cells of the body first by acetone and then by plastics, such as silicone rubber, polyester or epoxy resin.

Bodies: Cuerpos Humanos Reales at the Jockey Plaza in Lima is set up so that one starts at the skeletal system, and more layers (muscular, nervous, circulatory, digestive, respiratory, urinary, and reproductive systems; as well as fetal development and the treated body) are added in successive rooms.

In all rooms there will be specialized guides – all health professionals – and additionally virtual guides helping visitors to understand the human body and make the visit an educational, entertaining and recreational experience for children and adults.
