The 'New World Transparent Specimens' exhibit is absolutely stunning. Featuring preserved marine creatures that have been made translucent by dissolving their natural proteins and coloring them to highlight their complex compositions, the results are incredible to take in.
Japanese artist Iori Tomita used his fisherman skills to help put together the 'New World Transparent Specimens' exhibit. Each specimen took about four to six months to create, depending on its size. Recently displayed in Tokyo, it will soon be shown at the Tokyo Mineral Show in 2011.
