Seven flexible steel panels cover the walls in the first room. They extend from ceiling to floor. Body organs have been drawn on them with red-brown oil stick. The panels rust around the oily lines, and begin blending with the color of the drawn images.

In an adjacent room, walls are covered with graphite and Vaseline. A tall, rusted table is covered with wax replicas of body parts. They are ex-votos, which are sold outside Spanish and Mexican churches to represent body parts which may be in need of healing. The models include an ear, a hand, a breast, a foot, a tongue, and a heart.
