Where in the World is Chris Tilling Now?

Jumping out of your skin in the new year

Or more precisely, what’s he doing with himself these days?  You may be surprised to learn that he’s selling body parts online

Gunther von Hagens, Chris Tilling, a German anatomist British New Testament scholar famous for his controversial Body World exhibition displaying plastinated bodies, is now selling human and animal body parts — even as jewelry — online. The move has provoked strong condemnation from German churches which accuse him of degrading human dignity. A whole body from http://www.plastination-products.com costs about 70,000 euros ($97,400), torsos start at 55,644 euros and heads come in at around 22,000 euros each — excluding postage and packaging.

Gross Chris, gross…  Please cancel my request for some cool Christmas gift from you…

    That lede is rather deceptive. They aren’t selling human parts as jewelry. Only casts/reproductions, or plastinated animal parts.

    The Telegraph story doesn’t mention the jewelry at all.

    As for the other human parts, that’s only for medical/scientific/education institutions, and there’s nothing new about that.

    I mean, the quoted Yahoo story’s lede, not yours.
