Pelvic bones. Artwork of a frontal view of the bones of the pelvis and the cartilage (blue) where they articulate at the hip joint. The cartilage visible here covers the acetabulum, the socket part of the hip joint. At centre are the sacrum and coccyx, the two structures that form the base of the vertebral column. Either side are the left and right hip bones. The largest of these, the ilium, forms the wing-shaped areas (upper left and upper right). Below this are the pubis bones which join at lower centre at the pubic symphysis (below coccyx). The final hip bone is the ischium, mostly forming the loop seen either side of the pubic symphysis.
