Cranial Bones, lateral


Lateral Cranial Bones.

From the “Vintage Collection”; A truly complete and spectacular visual design that gives immediate assistance to the understanding of bones, plates and surfaces of the human skull (lateral view).
The lateral cranial bones are a group of bones that form the sides of the skull. They include the temporal bones, which house the ear structures and contribute to the base of the skull, and the parietal bones that form the upper sides and roof of the skull. These bones protect the brain and provide attachment sites for various muscles involved in chewing, hearing, and facial expression. We reccommend you to also view our comprehensive A&P artwork detailing the skeletal system with cranial bones here, as well as our craniofacial muscles artwork here.

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.
