Bone trabeculae, artwork. The trabeculae are the bars of bone forming a honeycombed hollow network. This is the structure of spongy bone, the inner layer of a bone, found below a dense shell of hard compact bone. The honeycombed structure of spongy bone makes it light but strong. The spaces here are normally filled with bone marrow, the substance in which blood cells are manufactured.
