This how the human body’s structure would have to be built in order to survive a high impact car crash. Created by Melbourne sculptor Patricia Piccinini, this sculpture (named Graham) was created as part of a road safety campaign sponsored by Australia’s Transport Accident Commission.
Patricia is not only a sculptor but also a leading trauma surgeon, and road safety engineer. She created Graham based on feedback from Dr. Logan, a leading expert in road safety.
The absence of a neck allows for a greater probability of injury to spinal regions.
Fortified neck structure prevents neck injuries.
Thicker skin shields the body from road rash, extra padding protects some of the internals. (Not quite sure about the extra nipples).
Hoof-like legs allow him to get move out of the way quickly
While his brain is the same size as a regular human being, his skull was built to withstand a strong impact.
His flat face minimizes injury risk to the facial structure, the added layer of fat protects him even more.
Strong chest cavity with added cushion support to protect internal organs and serve as a shock absorber.
Knees are multi-directional, so they can freely move in all directions.
