The presentation achieves its objective in three ways. First, the anatomical structures of the area are identified on a whole skeleton and then on a model of just the bony pelvis. Then different color clay models of the anatomical structures of the area are placed on this bony pelvis. The anatomical structures are then identified on a prosected cadaver. Anterior, posterior, lateral and midsagittal views of the area are shown
