Running Male Figure

Description Exhibitions Provenance Credit
Description The hips and legs of this athletic youth are seen in profile, in a stiffly bent pose that signified running to the Archaic Greeks. His anatomy has been sculpted in detail, though there is an abrupt and awkward transition between the upper and lower body. The figure once served as a handle, perhaps for the lid of a large vessel.
