The Arteries In Your Body

Here’s what the arteries look like in your body. These are acid-corrosion casts, meaning the system of the arteries is cast in plastic using acid.

UPDATE: Here’s an upper body too. Apparantly these things are cast in plastic with some pretty acidy technology.

  1. usually we see skeletons or muscle pics to learn about bones etc but i have never seen all the veins. i will check on youtube you have inspired me . no wonder when when the blind man begun ot see after Jesus healed him Jesus asked him what do you see and he answered i can see people like a trees . of course i asked myself question well if he was blind maybe he did see in some point of his life thathe was able to compare . but really thats what i see those artheries as a trees branches connected together one huge forest in form of a human body 🙂 great share, yola
