Re: Hannibal Lector is sculpting now?

I attended the first BODY WORLDS exhibit when it was in L.A. It was one of the most successful and well attended exhibits in recent history of the California Science Center. So much so that evening hours were established and in the final days, 24 hour access, to accomodate demand. Despite the creepy factor I would incourage any figurative artist, medical professional or anyone else that owns and operates a human body to experience this unique display. To call this an 'art' display is a bit of a misnomer and probably a by product of the media coverage. There is a certain amount of showmanship involved but ultimately it is blend of art/science/philosophy and LIFE. Now isn't that what art is all about?
BODY WORLDS is a unique and inventive way to unravel the complexities of the human body and its humanity.
