A road safety organisation in Australia has created a mock-up of the perfect body needed to survive a car crash. Australia's Transport Accident Commission (TAC) has called its human-looking creation 'Graham'. TAC commissioned a sculpture of Graham and released a video to educate road users about road safety. Although Graham is humanesque, he is somewhat grotesque in parts and resembles a character from a horror movie. The BBC says: "He has a head shaped like a boulder, feet snarled like tree roots and a chest like a wrinkled battering ram." A spokesperson from TAC said Graham was designed to highlight how frail and vulnerable the human body is when involved in a vehicle collision on the roads.
TAC commissioned celebrated artist Patricia Piccinini to create the artwork for Graham. She collaborated with a leading trauma surgeon and a road crash investigation expert to get the right look and build for Graham. She gave Graham a thick skull, a wider neck, an inflatable chest that acts like airbags, and hoof-like legs that allow Graham to jump out of dangerous situations. TAC chief executive Joe Calafiore commented on why his organisation commissioned Graham as an educational tool. He said: "Cars have evolved a lot faster than humans and Graham helps us understand why we need to improve every aspect of our roads system to protect ourselves from our own mistakes."
澳大利亚道路安全局制作车祸人体模型，称这类体型的人群可在车祸中幸免于难。澳大利亚交通事故委员会将这种人脸模型称之为“Graham” 。TAC（澳大利亚交通事故委员会）授权制作“Graham”模型，并公布了有关道路安全视频 。尽管“Graham”形似人形，但许多身体部位非常怪诞，类似恐怖电影中的角色 。BBC表示：“他的头形似卵石，双脚像树根一样互相缠绕，胸部就像起了褶皱的破城锤 。”TAC发言人称“Graham”的设计目的在于，展现人类在车祸中脆弱的一面 。
TAC委任著名艺术家帕翠西亚·皮奇尼尼制作“Graham”。她与创伤外科医生，以及车祸调查专家一同完成“Graham”的制作 。“Graham”的头骨更厚，脖子更宽，充气型胸部就如同气囊，双腿像马蹄一样可以让他逃离危险 。TAC行政长官乔·卡拉菲奥雷对制作“Graham”教学模型的原因发表了看法 。他称：“汽车的发展速度要远超人类，而通过“Graham”我们可以得知，我们为什么需要提升道路系统的方方面面来保护我们，避免我们犯错误 。”
