#104 Remarque: Spa Series - "Torso I"

Belvedere Torso

Fragmented sculpture was intolerable to the ancient Greek notion of  beauty.  Later excavations and discoveries,  such as the Belvedere Torso, changed the perception and strongly influenced late Renaissance and Baroque artists.

Like the horse, modeling the human figure is a challenge . . . 
the delicate planes are almost imperceptible.  While creating the partial figure, Torso I, my goal was to indicate and suggest the original gesture.
