Livingston's Human Anatomy Jigsaw Puzzles are a line of seven larger-than-life jigsaw puzzles that may be assembled and displayed individually, or all combined together to create a continuous 10' tall jigsaw puzzle of the entire human body. The puzzles feature stunning art created just for us by Mesa Schumacher, a Certified Medical Illustrator from Johns Hopkins University! She has worked in scientific and medical visualization for over eleven years and loves problems that wrinkle her brain. Each puzzle may be assembled and displayed individually, or all combined together to create a continuous 10' tall picture of the human body. Each volume of the arm and leg pairs focus on different aspects of the anatomy, highlighting different arrays of the intricate features that make up the human limbs.
Each box is a durable keepsake designed to look like a vintage medical text, including a front cover that swings open like the cover of a textbook, and seals shut with a durable magnetic clasp. The inside shows an annotated high resolution image of the puzzle with labels for the organs, tissues, and other features displayed. Volume I, The Human Head: Piece together the brain and the thick, bony skull which protects the brain on all sides. Assemble the jaw, the teeth, one eye and the intricate muscles surrounding the eye. Build the neck, which protects the spinal cord, and fill in the spinal cord with its concourse of blood vessels and nerves.
See how the neck houses the esophagus, larynx, trachea, and thyroid gland with astonishing economy. Complete the puzzle by fitting in the muscles of the neck which support and move the heavy head. Volume II, The Human Thorax: As you assemble this puzzle, you'll frame the organs with crosscuts of the the sternum, ribs, and thoracic vertebrae. Inside that protective cage lies a wealth of vital and vulnerable organs.The trachea carries air to the two lungs, and sitting between them, the four-chambered heart pumps blood through the pulmonary circulatory loop of the lungs. Once the blood is rich with fresh oxygen, it begins its journey through the circulatory system to carry oxygen to the rest of the body. Volume III, The Human Abdomen: Piece together the frame of the puzzle and you'll see how the vital organs are suspended in the abdominal cavity by loose connective tissue called mesentery, a substance that also contains blood vessels and nerves and allows the organs to move freely. Fill out the abdominal cavity by assembling the stomach and the small and large intestines which make up the lower digestive tract, as well as the supportive pancreas, liver and gallbladder - each an impressive machine in its own right. Volume IV, The Human Right Arm: Focusing on musculature, this puzzle shows how each muscle and tendon relates to the next. Together, this soft tissue enables us to flex and extend our upper limbs, push and pull, and precisely guide what we grasp.
The triceps allow us to straighten our arms at the elbow; the biceps and brachioradialis allow us to bend them. The forearm muscles provide rotation, flexion, and extension. A complex network of nerves, arteries, and veins are interwoven, constantly repairing our muscles and collecting information about our environment. When finished assembling these exquisite pieces, you will be in awe of your accomplishment and your body's complexity. Volume V, The Human Left Arm: Focusing on the skeletal structure, this puzzle shows how the humerus, ulna, and radius bones are oriented.
See the contours of the shoulder's ball-and-socket joint down to the fingers' many hinge joints. The carpal and metacarpal bones provide us amazing manual dexterity and pincer grip.
Veins and arteries are interwoven, carrying vital oxygenated blood and removing deoxygenated blood. Volume VI, The Human Right Leg: Focusing on musculature, this puzzle shows how each muscle and tendon relates to the next.
Together, this soft tissue enables locomotion. Hip and thigh muscles provide lateral movement, rotation, and flexion, allowing us to crawl and overcome hurdles; calf and ankle muscles provide extension and flexion, allowing us to spring off the ground and land upright on uneven terrain.Volume VII, The Human Left Leg: Focusing on the skeletal structure, this puzzle shows how the basal, intermediate, and distal segments are oriented. See the many joints that enable us to flex and extend our lower limbs to be bipedal. The pelvis meets the femur, giving way to the patella, tibia, and fibula for an optimal blend of rigidity and flexibility. Various, delicate tarsals, metatarsals, and phalanges allow us to maintain our balance. This item is in the category "Toys & Hobbies\Puzzles\Contemporary Puzzles\Jigsaw".
