SEM of Human Skin. The top layer of the epidermis is composed of flattened, dead skin cells that form the surface of the skin. The dead cells from this layer are continuously being shed and replaced by cells from the living epidermal layer below it (red). The lowest layer (not seen here) is the dermis. The skin is the body's largest organ, accounting for around 15% of the body's weight.
PERPETUAL DEFORMATION Deformed human foetuses from an anatomy collection have been silicone plastinated by anatomist Gunther von Hagens and wrapped in plastic for final gas-curing. The specimens won’t rot nor smell. Even the soft down on their skin is preserved. Left to right: Siamese twins, Hydrocephalus, Anencephalus.
