Buttock muscles. Computer artwork of a side view (front of body at left) of the hips showing some of the muscles (red) of the buttocks. These are shown attached to the femurs (thigh bones) and the pelvis bones. At lower right (semi-transparent) is the largest muscle, the gluteus maximus, one of the strongest muscles in the body. At upper centre is the gluteus medius, nestling beneath the iliac crest of the wing of the ilium bone of the pelvis. Partially seen at top is part of the spine, which ends in the coccyx (tailbone). The protruding bit of bone at centre left is the pubic tubercle.
