To See is to Know
The study of human anatomy has always operated on a basic principle: to see is to know. This same principle led Egyptian, Greek, Roman and Islamic cultures to a progressively more scientific understanding of the human form. Public dissections during the Renaissance furthered this understanding, laying the foundation for our modern medical institutions and for this Exhibition.
Following this same principle- to see is to know—Bodies…The Exhibition uses dissected human specimens to provide you with a visual textbook to your own body.
The specimens in this Exhibition have been treated with the dignity and respect they so richly deserve.
Our bodies are indeed intricately more complex and wondrous than all the computers and gadgetry that surround us today. Yet many of us do not know what is beneath our skin – how our bodies function, what they need to survive, what destroys them, what revives them.
