Anatomy Park is located near a place of learning like the Natural History Museum or the Wellcome Centre in London, and extends their existing theme of being "a free museum and library exploring health and human experience".

The park contains a large range of brass plaques each of which features all of the bones from either a human, animal, bird or fish, but separated into different locations, and accompanied by their latin names along with other information.

The idea is that an individual can go around making rubbings on sheets of paper that they can subsequently cut out and join together to form a complete skeleton.

This means (for example) that there are potentially 206 bone rubbings to collect. This number has been somewhat reduced to simplify the process. For example, the smaller bones such as in the hands bones are all combined, as is the rib cage. Some are also realised in a number of view points. ie profile as well as front and back view.

The adventurous and creative can combine rubbings of the bones of several species to make new fictitious creatures. For example, a giraffe spine may now terminate with a rabbit skull, or a horse may grow extra legs or many small wings.

The results can all be shared on a new Instagram page devoted to the subject, just in time for Halloween of course.

Another tourist: "Is this park like an independent state or something?"

Local: "No, why do you ask?"

Another tourist: "Oh sorry, I thought this was Autonomy Park"

       You could mess with people by making some of the bones a very slightly different scale, so when the skeleton is assembled, it looks just a little bit out-of-whack.

       ^//slightly different scale// That will take care of itself, due to the range of rubbingses material. Dollar-store wax crayon will give a 'rounder', less-defined rubbing, compared to a No.9xxB Lyra Rembrandt, which will pick up every nuance.
