Caption: Large intestine, artwork. At upper left is an anterior (frontal) view of a human figure in outline with the large intestine shown in pink. A close-up of the large intestine is at bottom, with the five sections labelled: ascending colon, transverse colon, descending colon, sigmoid colon, and the rectum. At upper right is a section of the colon dissected to show details of the lumen (interior space). The semilunar folds form the 'pouches' or 'bulges' in the intestines as muscular contractions move digested food through the organ. The main function of the colon is to reabsorb water, resulting in faeces to be stored in the rectum for excretion through the anus.
