The Wrestlers clearly demonstrates how far the technique of Greek sculpture had advanced in its depiction of the human body. Five hundred years before, sculptors displayed the human figure with hips and shoulders aligned, body planes accentuated, and one foot advanced. The creator of this dynamic work chose a moment in an athletic contest when intense muscle strain is about to begin. The intertwining legs and convolution of the bodies draw the eye around the figures in anticipation of movement that seems at any moment to commence.
