Thoracic Vertebrae, Lateral View


Lateral view of a thoracic vertebrae.

From the “Vintage Collection”.
The thoracic vertebrae are a group of 12 bones located in the middle part of the spine, between the cervical and lumbar vertebrae. They are larger than the cervical vertebrae but smaller than the lumbar vertebrae. The main features of the thoracic vertebrae include a larger spinous process that angles downward, ribs articulation points called costal facets, and transverse processes with facets for rib attachment – all identifiable elements that are clearly presented on this beautiful artwork!

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.
