This image is a historic drawing by Henry Vandyke Carter (1831-1897) that appeared in Anatomy of the Human Body (1918). The image features the head and neck of a human embryo at eighteen weeks old, with Meckel's cartilage and the hyoid bar exposed. Meckel's cartilage forms a cartilaginous template for the lower jaw of mammals which is replaced by bone via the process of perichondral ossification.
