Abdominal anatomy. At top left of the abdominal cavity is the liver (dark red) and at top right is the stomach. Hanging down from the stomach, covering the intestines, is the greater omentum (yellow). This is a fold of the peritoneum, the layer of connective tissue that lines the abdominal cavity. This anatomical artwork is plate 2 from volume 5 (1839) of 'Traite complet de l'anatomie de l'homme' (1831-1854). This 8-volume anatomy atlas was produced by the French physician and anatomist Jean-Baptiste Marc Bourgery (1797-1849). The illustrations were by Nicolas-Henri Jacob (1781-1871).
