Kouros

I was looking at some of the extraordinary physiques of bodybuilders and carved this one from a block of Portland stone. I put a tv/computer screen on his head and very faintly suggested his features. It could be virtual reality headset now.
His abs are like buttons on a control panel.
He's having trouble supporting his bulk and the two supports buckle under his weight. Veins coil up his arms and legs like mooring ropes.
Private collection.
