Female sex organs. Historical illustrations of the anatomy of the female genitalia and reproductive organs. At top, four small diagrams show various forms of the hymen, the membrane that covers the vagina at birth. At upper centre are the genitalia of the vulva. The folds of the labia are pulled back to show (from bottom) the opening of the vagina, the urethral opening (for urination) and the clitoris. The vagina (see section at bottom) is a muscular tube (pink) leading to the uterus (blue/grey). In the uterus, an embryo develops into a baby, which is born through the vagina. Colour lithograph by Fairland from The Viscera of the Human Body, 1840. Based on drawings by Bagg.
