The Thin Man

Sequential Human Anatomy Program

Near life-size, full color rendition of the human body with transparent Mylar overlays representing five layers of tissue mounted on warp-proof composition board and supported by a tip-proof, four-legged, tubular steel frame.

  • Near life-size, full-color rendition of the human body
  • Transparent Mylar overlays represent five layers of tissue:
  • First layer – 30 structures: Musculature of the head, neck, thorax and abdomen
  • Second layer – 44 structures: Brain, glands, eye, teeth, lungs, liver, heart and major vessels, stomach and intestines
  • Third layer – 59 structures: Sinuses, tongue, trachea, heart, spleen, pancreas and large intestine
  • Fourth layer – 27 structures: Esophagus, pleura, aorta, inferior vena cava, autonomic nerve trunk, kidneys and adrenal glands
  • Fifth layer (full figure) – 77 structures: Brain, pharynx, vertebral column, rib cage, muscles of upper and lower extremities, pelvic organs and muscles
  • Shows three-dimensional spatial relationships of principal structures, major vessels and organ systems
  • More than 200 anatomical features are named, indexed and keyed
  • Rear depicts a full-figure view of the skeletal and nervous systems
  • 63 inches (160 cm) tall
  • Mounted on warp-proof composition board
  • Supported by tip-proof, four-legged, tubular steel frame stand
