Meet Graham. He might look a little different but I assure you that he’s human. Well, sort of. The reason he looks the way he does is because his body has been modified to withstand a car crash.
Graham was created as part of a new Australian road safety campaign by the Transport Accident Commission (TAC). He was designed by sculptor Patricia Piccinini, a leading trauma surgeon, and a road safety engineer, who modified him based on their own knowledge of traffic accidents. The result isn’t a pretty sight but it’s certainly a sobering one.
As you can see, Graham doesn’t have a neck because these snap easily in car accidents. He also has a flat, fleshy face to protect his ears and nose. And if you’re wondering about all those extra nipples, they’re to protect his ribs like a natural set of airbags.
He has been greatly modified to look this way for a high chance of survival if he were to be involved in am auto crash. The basic idea behind this is to portray the fragile nature of the human body as it's not fully equipped for high impact accidents.
So in essence, it's a warning to desist from overspending and reckless driving for a longer life and for safer roads.
