Caption: Thoracic aorta. Dissection of the chest cavity with the heart and lungs and other organs removed, showing the thoracic portion of the aorta (red), the main body artery. This artery carries oxygenated blood from the heart to the rest of the body. The arteries branching off it are shown here. This anatomical artwork is plate 226 from volume 4 of 'Manuel d'anatomie descriptive du corps humain' (1825). This 5-volume anatomy atlas was produced by French physician and surgeon Jules Germain Cloquet (1790-1883). The illustrations were by Haincelin. Volume 4 illustrated the anatomy of the circulatory and respiratory systems.
