Skeletal System

Three-dimensional visualization reconstructed from scanned human data composited with a photograph of a nude female. A transparent body envelope displays the skeletal system with an emphasis on the pelvis, spine, ribs, arms, and hands. Bone is so versatile that when it is assembled into a light and durable framework it can execute complex mechanical movements, and so strong that it gives shape and stiffness to the human form without buckling.
