It refers to the "Bodies: The Exhibition," by the Premier Exhibition based in Atlanta, Georgia, which was dismayed among the public knowing that the cadaver came from unclaimed bodies in China. Moreover, countries that banned show and exhibition of human cadavers include Hawaii, San Francisco, California and Seattle, Washington.
