New World Transparent Specimens / Iori Tomita
While attending the Faculty of Fisheries, Kitasato University, he was fascinated by the transparent skeletal specimens for research and started his own production. Although it is a real biological specimen based on the method of skeletal research, it also has the appeal of being a "modeled work" that makes you feel "life" more closely. It is attracting attention not only in Japan but all over the world.

What is a transparent specimen?
Specimens prepared by a staining method that dyes bones and cartilage in red and blue, respectively, and makes other tissues transparent. In addition to being used for research in various fields such as functional anatomy, it is also attracting attention as an art work. It will also save the lives of dead fish.

By exhibiting the illustrations drawn by the Sunshine Aquarium and the living organisms, the highlight is the original commentary that shows the parts (bones) that change when the creature transforms into a human being.
