Lumbar Vertebrae, Superior View


Superior view of a lumbar vertebrae.

From the “Vintage Collection”.
The lumbar vertebrae are the largest and strongest vertebrae in the spinal column. Located in the lower back, there are five lumbar vertebrae designated as L1 to L5. They have a specific structure that allows for weight-bearing, flexibility, and stability. The individual vertebrae consist of a large body, a spinal canal for the protection of the spinal cord, and various processes for the attachment of muscles, ligaments, and joints. The lumbar vertebrae play a crucial role in supporting the upper body while allowing for movements such as bending, twisting, and lifting, and we are sure that this artwork will help your patients comprehend the complexity of the vertebrae.

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.
