Back Muscles Anatomy


Posterior back muscles, superficial and deep.

From the “Vintage Collection”; Get a clear overview of the back muscles; superficial muscles on the left side and deep muscles on the right side. The back muscles include the trapezius, which is responsible for movements of the shoulder and neck; the latissimus dorsi, which assists in movements of the arm and shoulder; the erector spinae, which help maintain posture and extension of the spine; and the rhomboids and levator scapulae, which help retract and rotate the shoulder blades – we think this artwork would function as a great talking point at your clinic, as well as a beautiful focus piece.

We absolutely adore the old hand drawn anatomy illustrations and the intention with this artwork has been to honour their particular style, while combining it with a modern approach to patient education. Throughout our vintage collection, the names and labels have all been positioned to point towards the very centre of each artwork, an effect that is further enhanced with our signature dotted lines. This technique has given the informative texts an added function as a graphic element by itself; not to distract from the original source materials, but to complement it.
