Sculpture // Discobolus

Inspired by the famed Diskobolus of Myron from the 5th century B.C.E., Valentine’s Diskobolus amplifies the tightly-wound pose of the discuss thrower with it’s bulging and fluid musculature. The mirrored stainless steel effaces emotion and strain from the figure to a far greater degree than the original. At the same time though, the figure is re-humanized as it reflects back the viewer’s own face and body.
