A piece from the "BodyWorlds3" exhibit, which covers some 20,000 square feet and includes more than 200 specimens, including whole body plastinates, organs, translucent body slices and a special presentation on the heart.

The human body — its complexity, its beauty, its inner-most workings — is the subject of a revolutionary exhibit called "BodyWorlds3" at The Leonardo, Salt Lake City's new science museum, located on Library Square.

Through a process called Plastination, invented by German researcher Dr. Gunther von Hagens, authentic human specimens that have been donated to science for this purpose are preserved and exhibited in ways that draw attention to body structure, design, ability and purpose.

The exhibit covers some 20,000 square feet and includes more than 200 specimens, including whole body plastinates, organs, translucent body slices and a special presentation on the heart.

BodyWorlds3 will run through January. Tickets range in price from $16-$22. For more information, see Sunday's Arts Section of the Deseret News or log on to www.theleonardo.org.
