Transparent Animals by Iori Tomita

Published Jul 6, 2011

Japanese artist Iori Tomita creates these mesmerizing images without the use of X-rays or digital manipulation. He alters animal specimens, making their skin invisible by using enzymes and chemicals to break down the protein and muscles, making them transparent. He then dyes the bones, cartilages and organs using fluorescent colours. The results are stunning.

From his website:

“I create transparent specimens as pieces of work that help people feel closer to the wonders of life. People may look at my specimens as an academic material, a piece of art, or even an entrance to philosophy. There is no limitation to how you interpret their meaning.”
