T: Sacrum bone.

U : Gluteus maximus.

X : Infra-spinatus.

0 : Teres major.

W : Vertebra prominens (seventh vertebra of spine). C is side view of trunk.

In these plates the same letters are used to indicate the same muscles shown on front and back diagrams, and their relation to each other can be understood by reference to the key plate.

Note the flatness in gluteus maximus, U, causing a dimpled effect side view. This muscle does not absorb the whole of the back width of body, two side planes intruding on space.

The base of this muscle is also at an angle with middle line of body, in full view of the back; also it has an under crease of flesh (see diagram B).

Both front and sides of body are covered with soft masses of muscles allowing free bending movement, being very little restricted by bones (see also Plate i).

The muscular flesh markings are indicated on all these diagrams A, B, C, D, and will show more or less according to plumpness, lack of flesh or special actions of the body such as throwing, reaching, or bending movements.

Trunk Outline (Plate 9).

In the front view of trunk the breasts fall outwards and droop in a sweeping curve (Fig. i).

Extension is a backward movement (see Fig. 4).
