Body Worlds AmsterdamBody Worlds Amsterdam: The Happiness Project

More than 200 real human bodies are a part of this Amsterdam Body Worlds interactive exhibition. This one is focused on how happiness affects our health and is an amazing story that physically shows the link between our emotional and physical states.

Bodies of dead people serve to illustrate detailed human anatomy. This uncommon idea came to the Netherlands from Germany, started there by Gunther von Hagens who invented a new technique of preserving human bodies by replacing water and fat with different hardened plastics like silicone, polyester and other polymers.
