Ok, yes its a butt. Its fairly nice one at that.
Its one of my favorite bronze backsides of all time.
Yes bronze. Not bronzed.
This is the back side from one of the fabulous Riace Bronze warriors.
Life size ancient Greek statues.
They are fabulous, and the level of detail is astounding.
So why show the butt? Yes its a nice butt, but why the butt?
Because of the continual attention to detail on all parts of this statue. Because the back side of this work of art was not ignored.
