A skinned human cadaver is arranged to appear as though it is about to kick a ball in the new "Bodies" exhibition at the Museum of Science and Industry in Tampa, Florida. With individual muscles peeled away from the skeleton, the "kicker" is intended to illustrate how the body's 650 or so muscles work together.
The exhibition opened on August 18, 2005, and has drawn record crowdsand controversy. Some critics object to the sometimes playful poses. But the key bone of contention is that the corpses are unclaimed or unidentified individuals from China. As such, neither the deceased nor their families consented to the use of the corpses in the exhibit.
