 Superficial anatomy - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Superficial anatomy is a descriptive science dealing with anatomical features that can be studied by sight, without dissecting an organism.
In particular, in the case of human anatomy, these are the form and proportions of the human body and the surface landmarks which correspond to deeper structures hidden from view, both in static pose and in motion.
Studying of superficial anatomy is the basis for depiction of human body in classic art.
