Product Description

Review

“Hallam uses the Anatomy Museum at the University of Aberdeen, UK, to anchor a history of collections of human anatomical remains as ‘synoptic mazes’—labyrinthine summations of knowledge. She charts their convoluted chronicles of acquisition, dissection and preservation, weaving in a narrative on the cultural display of death, from ancient ossuaries to plastinated bodies.”
(Nature)
