Why is it wrong to anatomize Mama Mary?
Because you must have a corpse in order to perform a dissection.
You cannot employ dissection as a form of expression of Mary without in some way primarily saying that Mary is a corpse. The means or form by which you are depicting is what is being depicted.
That piece of "art" (which is being defended in the most ridiculous and contorted ways by a few Catholics as "brilliant") has a primary context that stands solidly prior to any theology that one may wish to extrapolate: dissection. That is the primary means, the primary preoccupation of entering into the mystery: dissection. And dissection must have the primary context of a corpse.
Surely our brilliant blogger theologians have heard of the dogma of the Assumption of Mary into Heaven?
But anyways, good luck with all that.
