Dolls and animation characters displaying their internal organs is a thing, it seems. From Barbie to Blythe and Mario to Nemo, it’s the bones’ time to shine!
Let’s Flay Barbie
Jason Freeny likes to really get into his work, which is all well and good unless you’re Jack the Ripper. Thankfully for all concerned, Freeny focuses his appreciable talents on inanimate models like Barbie. I think we all agree Mattel’s wunderkind could use a little cutting down to size and Freeny is just the guy to do the cutting.

You’ll see more of Freeny’s eye-opening (literally) work further in this post but for the moment let’s all gaze upon Barbie, stripped to the bone and beyond. Is it weird to note Barbie’s nipples are on the inside? Yep, it’s definitely weird, just forget I ever mentioned it.

Released in late 2009, the two-item set features a modernistic “Blue” figurine plus an antique-style “Vintage” version whose finish resembles aged ivory… like something you’d find in a medieval anatomist’s studio. Of course, possessing such a thing in the 15th century would likely get one burned at the stake for witchcraft and heresy.
My Little Bony
Jason Freeny sculpted a peck of bony ponies. A peck of bony ponies Jason Freeny sculpted. Got it? Good. Now if Jason Freeny sculpted a peck of bony ponies, where’s the peck of bony ponies Jason Freeny sculpted? On eBay, most likely, though bidding is usually spirited!

Freeny’s inside look at My Little Pony is enough to chill any well-meaning brony to the, er, bone. Will this lead to a new, deeper and more disturbed subculture of emo-bronyism? One can only hope not.
