Discobolos by Myron (circa 460 B.C.)    Myron chose a moment of rest between two periods of movement for a statue that combines implied action with classical formalism. It seems the perfect formula for the depiction of a beautiful athletic body. It must have been as popular in ancient times as it is today if one is to judge by the number of copies that have come down to us; those in the National Museum in Rome and the Vatican being but two. The backward swing of the discus has reached its furthest point and the unwinding of the body has not commenced. As consequence a poise is achieved; the utmost straining of the muscles is yet to come.

Note: Small figures similar to photo on the left, except on square black marble base.
