Transparent Marine Specimens

Posted by on December 13th, 2010

New World Transparent Specimens offers marine creatures from the Japanese artist Iori Tomita that are transparent with colored bones. Using a method that involves the dissolution of natural proteins Tomita adds red dye to hard bones and blue dye to soft bones.

At this point it seems that the collection is limited to marine creatures only.
