Skull. Coloured X-ray of a human skull seen from the side. The face is at left. At top is the large cranium (pink) which encloses the brain. The jaw (lower left) houses numerous teeth. One of the wisdom teeth can be seen emerging at the back of the lower jaw. All the bones of the skull, apart from the mandible (jaw-bone) and facial bones, are fused together to form a solid structure that protects the brain.
