    Structure and Functionality: For the anatomical model project, the pelvic girdle was researched and modeled. This part of the body is interesting to learn about due to its’ sheer complexity and versatile grouping of bone. The pelvic girdle supports and balances the trunk, connects it to the legs and and contains and supports the intestines, urinary bladder, and internal sex organs. Another fascinating facet of the pelvis is that it is the only bone in the body that is gender specific. Males have the android pelvis, whereas females have the gynaecoid pelvis, with a broader and wider structure, an adaptation for childbirth. For the purposes of this project, a female pelvic girdle was modeled. Irrespective of their differences, both male and…
