Shoulder Anatomy, Frontal


Frontal view of human shoulder anatomy.

From the “Vintage Collection”.
The shoulder is a complex structure consisting of bones, muscles, tendons, ligaments, and cartilage. The main bones involved in the shoulder joint are the humerus, scapula, and clavicle, while the muscles and tendons surrounding the joint provide stability and enable a wide range of motion. Additionally, the shoulder joint is supported by ligaments and a layer of cartilage called the labrum, which helps to improve stability and reduce friction within the joint. The goal of this shoulder anatomy artwork is to show the complexity of the shoulder joint in a clear and artistic way.

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.
