(CNN NEWSOURCE, & WPTV) A life-size sculpture in Australia is showing experts how our bodies can change during a car accident.

His name is Graham, and he doesn't look like the average man.

That's because he's designed to withstand the trauma of a collision.

Some of Graham's features include a flattened face to absorb the energy of an impact and a larger skull to better protect his brain.

He's part of a road safety campaign, showing how vulnerable our bodies can be.

“Graham is an educational tool that will serve the community for years to come as a reminder of why we need to develop a safer road system that will protect us when things go wrong,” Transport Accident Commission Chief Executive Officer Joe Calafiore said in a statement on the group's website.  

The creator worked with a trauma surgeon to design Graham.
