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
The park contains a large range of brass plaques each of
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
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

||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.
