About this work
As a method of representation, selected muscles have been raised or suspended from their attachments. For example, the right trapezius muscle ("D") and the right gluteus major ("A") are raised. The extensor carpi radialis ("V") is suspended from the arm as is the gastrocnemius ("N N") at the lower left leg, allowing one to compare this muscle in situ at the back of the lower right leg
