Caption: Abdominal anatomy. 19th century artwork of a section through the abdomen at the level of the second lumbar vertebra (white, centre). The aorta (red), the body's main artery, and the vena cava (blue), the body's main vein, are above the vertebra. Either side of it are the kidneys (brown). Across top is the stomach, with the duodenum, the first section of the small intestine, below it. This anatomical artwork is plate 17 from volume 5 (1839) of 'Traite complet de l'anatomie de l'homme' (1831-1854). This 8-volume anatomy atlas was produced by the French physician and anatomist Jean-Baptiste Marc Bourgery (1797-1849). The illustrations were by Nicolas-Henri Jacob (1781-1871).
