Idealized male bodies in poses that show off their beauty are something that is throughout the history of art.

Sometimes I get on an art history kick! (I was a professor of art history for around twenty years.) In this painting I was thinking about some of the relief sculptures of the entablature of the Greek classical building of the Parthenon from around 450 BCE.

One of the things about the sculptures is that the nude figures are in action poses that look almost as if they are dancing as they battle other figures. In art historical language they are posed in "eurythmic gestures." This dance pose (a sort of vogue pose ala Madonna's song) is called "eurythmia" or a "eurythmic" pose.

The yellow color and warm tones are hard to see in this photo so I took a series of photos in natural and studio light. The color shifts are slightly off in digital photos.
