About Gunther von Hagens' Body Worlds
Dr. Gunther von Hagens invented Plastination in 1977, in an effort to improve the education of medical students. He created the Body Worlds exhibitions to bring anatomy to the public.

The organs and whole-body plastinates in the exhibition derive from people who have, in their lifetime, generously donated their bodies for Plastination, to specifically educate future generations about health. More than 9,000 donors including more than 900 Americans have bequeathed their bodies to von Hagens' Institute for Plastination in Heidelberg, Germany.
