Caption: Skull anatomy. Historical anatomical artwork of various views of the human skull. The frontal view (upper left) shows the teeth, nose and eye spaces, and the upward bulge of the cranium housing the brain. The side view (lower left) shows the size of the cranium, as does the dissected side view at lower right. The base of the skull (upper right) contains a large hole for the spinal cord to run from the brain to the rest of the body. Below that is the bony roof of the mouth surrounded by jaw and cheek bones. The central, sectioned, side view shows the facial sinuses, spaces in the bones of the face. Artwork from The Bones and Ligaments of the Human Body (Ed. Jones Quain, London, 1842).
