The Voynich Manuscript: Trachea and Lungs

The drawing in the top part of fol. 75v of the Voynich Manuscript may represent the air passage in human anatomy. The details in of the tube are similar to the trachea. The function of inhaling/exhaling may be the meaning of the fountain-like drawing. The ripples on the edges of the 'lungs' may be representing the alveoli.
