If, during the course of human development, the ability to survive a car crash would be a major evolutionary advantage, the human body might look like this guy. His name is Graham, and he's a sculpture made by the Transport Accident Commission of Victoria, Australia.
The agency is using Graham to express the importance of car safety. A normal human body can't shrug off a major collision. Graham, however, could do pretty well. The Guardian describes him:
He has no neck, meaning he cannot break it; a flat, fatty face to protect the nose and ears; airbags in between each rib; and thicker and tougher skin. His knees bend in all directions. […]
The commission says Graham is informed by “the science of human vulnerability” – not-quite-living proof of how susceptible we are to injury.
