Neck and shoulder arteries (red). Dissection showing the right carotid arteries of the neck, and the right subclavian artery of the shoulder. The largest artery here is the right common carotid artery. Smaller arteries branching off these two supply the chest, neck, and head with oxygenated blood. This anatomical artwork is plate 216 from volume 4 of 'Manuel d'anatomie descriptive du corps humain' (1825). This 5-volume anatomy atlas was produced by French physician and surgeon Jules Germain Cloquet (1790-1883). The illustrations were by Haincelin. Volume 4 illustrated the anatomy of the circulatory and respiratory systems.
