Coloured illustration of blood vessels of arm
Blood supply to arm. Computer-enhanced historical illustration of the blood supply to the right arm. The top part of a human skeleton is seen with the right arm raised over the skull. At centre the skull is seen with blood vessels (coloured blue and green) supplying the cranium. Below this the spinal vertebrae lead down with the shoulder joint at lower right. The arteries supplying the arms start with the axillary artery at the shoulder. This leads to the brachial artery which supplies the upper arm. This branches into the ulnar and radial arteries at the elbow joint which both supply the lower arm and hands. Drawing by the Italian anatomist Paolo Mascagni (1755- 1815)

This print showcases a computer-enhanced historical illustration of the intricate blood supply to the right arm. The top portion of a human skeleton is depicted, with the right arm gracefully raised over the skull. At the center, an astonishing network of blue and green blood vessels can be seen supplying the cranium, emphasizing their vital role in nourishing this essential organ. Below this, the spinal vertebrae lead down to reveal the shoulder joint at lower right. The arteries responsible for providing oxygenated blood to our arms take center stage in this artwork. Starting with the axillary artery at the shoulder, they continue as it branches into the brachial artery which supplies blood to our upper arm. As we move further down towards our elbow joint, both ulnar and radial arteries emerge from this main vessel, ensuring a continuous flow of life-sustaining nutrients throughout our lower arm and hands. This remarkable drawing was created by Paolo Mascagni (1755-1815), an Italian anatomist renowned for his meticulous attention to detail and accurate representations of human anatomy. Through his work, he has beautifully captured not only scientific knowledge but also artistic elegance. With its fusion of artistry and medical understanding, this print serves as a testament to both human ingenuity and appreciation for our complex circulatory system. It offers viewers a glimpse into one aspect of our extraordinary physiology while celebrating Mascagni's contribution to anatomical studies that continue to shape modern medicine today.
