Iconic Belvedere Torso set to be showcased in landmark UK exhibition
Many men would love to use the skills available from the surgeons who work within the London cosmetic surgery clinics to have a body that emulates this iconic sculpture.
We are of course referring to the Belvedere Torso which has been lent to the UK from its home in the Vatican for the first time, and is of huge significant for all concerned.
This is indeed an original Greek sculpture which was discovered in Rome during the Renaissance and, as few may know, inspired Michelangelo’s Adam.
The sculpture, which as you can see by the main image does not fully include all of its limbs, will be exhibited next to a Michelangelo sketch of Adam – an initial drawing for the Sistine chapel. Additionally there will be a reclining nude figure from the Parthenon, therefore uniting the schools of ancient Greek sculptor Phidias and Renaissance master Michelangelo.
Also set to be showcased as part of the exhibition will be a full-size bronze sculpture of an athlete, discovered on the seabed some 16 years ago in 1999 off the coast of Croatia.
The impressive figure can be seen scraping oil off his skin after enjoying some exercise. Characteristically such a masterpiece has only survived in copies made from marble.
The human body is something that has always been revered and it can be argued that the Greeks possessed some of the most iconic physiques the world has ever seen.
