Cross Section of the Head

This is another drawing from that anatomical atlas I described earlier. I actually composited this from the three or four cross-sectioned heads that were kept in storage in the cold room at Santa Monica College. Different structures were more or less visible and "shapely" in each head, so I just used the best of each to produce the final image.
