JOHANNESBURG - The organiser of the Body Worlds Exhibition currently on display in Johannesburg said on Monday he is pleased the graphic display has prompted many people to reconsider their lifestyles.

Using real human bodies and displaying them in various poses, the scientific demonstration attempts to show how the body works.

Exposed muscles, works and bones are what you can expect to see when you visit the exhibition.

The display offers a unique insight into the powers and vulnerabilities of the human body.

People can expect to see the human life cycle from conception to infancy.

Managing director of Blue Oceans Exhibitions Tyrone Thöle said, "Sometimes people say 'wow, that's unbelievable, I never knew the human body was capable of those kinds of things' while other people saw deeper issues in terms of feeling different where they are in their age."

The exhibition runs until 30 June at the Sci-Bono Discovery Centre in Newtown.
