Ecorchè: The Upper Limbs

This week marks the completion of our work on osteology, or the study of bones. I have to go and refine a few more details before I am able to accurately put in the muscles. This week, we focused on the bones of the arms. It is fascinating to me to see just how many tiny details we overlook when we are talking about the skeleton. There are little bumps called tubercles that simply serve the purpose of muscle attachment points. Each and every part of the skeleton is deliberate and serves a specific purpose in both housing and protection.
