Male Nudes 男性の裸体

You are probably laughing as you are looking at this lovely picture. Do you have any ideas what it is? This is a Mongolian carpet from the 18th century that was exhibited at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York. It's quite large, and the colors were so rich.


This was was my favorite among several carpets there. I love his face and expression. He reminds me of the Mongolian sumo wrestlers... they have the same hairdos!


A gorgeous statue of Hercules at the Met. also was stunning. Male nudes have been celebrated throughout our history. They represent power, strength and life force!
