The most well-known exhibition piece in the collections of the Hygiene Museum in Dresden is the Transparent Man. It’s the world’s ﬁrst anatomical model made of synthetic material. The sculpture however doesn’t age very well. The skin is yellow and frail while the plasticizer and the coloring is dissolving from the inner organs and blood vessels. The Transparent Man carries his exhibition history literally on his skin.
