New World Transparent Specimens
"This is not a computer-generated 3D model, nor is it a drawing or painting...This was once a living being."
In today's Presentation of the Day, "New World Transparent Specimens" from PKN Tokyo Vol. 95, once fisherman/ocean researcher Iori Tomita shows off his striking work. The secret to his glowing, translucent skeletal art is a process that involves "enzymatically dissolving protein, and dying bones and cartilage" of once-living sea life.
