Gunther von Hagens' BODY WORLDS & The Cycle of Life, the latest in the groundbreaking BODY WORLDS exhibition series that's been seen by more than 36 million people worldwide, showcases the complexity, resilience and vulnerability of the human body through anatomical studies of the body in distress, disease and optimal health.
