Von Hagens, a German anatomist famous for his controversial Body World exhibition displaying plastinated bodies, is now selling human and animal body parts -- even as jewellery -- online. A whole body from the online shop costs about 70,000 euros, torsos start at 55,644 euros and heads come in at around 22,000 euros each -- excluding postage and packaging.

    Von Hagens plans to sell a wide range of his creations, says the Associated Press. He will offer animal-part jewelry, such as a pair of earrings with giraffe tail slices, which sell for $57.55, and also for sale will be entire human corpses. However, Von Hagens says any human body parts will be exclusively reserved for sale to institutions such as universities and hospitals for research purposes.
