From the Atom to the Solar System

The collage takes us from the proton  (top left) through to element and molecule and finally to strands of DNA in the first row.  The second row starts with a group of cells advances to the tissues, to the organ which in this case is the liver.

The third row represents units2unity from the organ (liver with its connections (arteries and veins to body systems and the body.

The fourth row advances from the body to the person, couple family home community.

The last row is the village advancing to the city, state country earth and solar system.

Note the similarity between the proton and the earth, and between the atom and solar system.

Endoderm of the Foregut

In the 4th week of gestation, the primitive endoderm gives rise to a foregut diverticulum called the hepatic diveticulum at the junction of the of the foregut and midgut. The hepatic diverticulum is the precursor for the liver bile ducts and gallbladder. hepatic diverticulum pars hepatica and pars cystica.
