Life ART Super Anatomy is a medical anatomy clip art collection. (Other LifeART products include clip art collections on health care, emergency medicine, and dental art.) Anatomy drawings in this collection include sets of images showing systems—circulatory, digestive, endocrine, head and neck, joints, muscular, nervous, reproductive, respiratory, skeletal, and urinary—and body parts, including external images. There are 142 separate anatomic images, and the sets also have 21 icons.

In practice, these images actually produce a much higher number of figures (TechPool reports over 500), since they are designed to be "ungrouped" and grouped. For example, deleting the superficial back muscles in the posterior torso muscles figure will reveal the intermediate back muscles, and subsequent removal of these will show the deep muscles of the back. Most internal organs can be grouped to fit into their respective body cavities. Most cross-sectional views of organs will fit under the external organ view.
