Anatomy students have unveiled their most elaborate body painting project to date, detailing the nervous and cardiovascular systems of the human body.
Osteopathy student David Brock from the School of Health Sciences bravely accepted the role of Neurovascular Man, who was brought to life by fellow students and painters Lydia Hill and Tamara Marcus.
The RMIT students were joined by Helena Joshi, Ryan Bishal-Faruque and Ari Hoogland from James Cook University, Queensland.
The hyper-realistic body painting project featured half of Mr Brock’s body depicting the nervous system, including the brain, while the other half was painted with the cardiovascular system (the heart and all the blood vessels of the body).
Neurovascular Man was the latest teaching and learning project from Dr Claudia Diaz, following the success of Anatomical Man, Skeletal Man and Systems Man.
Dr Diaz said the project involved an amazing amount of detail, taking a painstakingly 22 hours to complete.
“This was our most difficult project to date as it involved the detailed creation of fine nerve and blood vessels and the brain,” she said.
Ms Joshi and Mr Bishal-Faruque, who have just graduated as doctors, were flown in from Queensland especially for the project because of their capabilities as artists as well as their wealth of knowledge on human anatomy.
