CM: This drawing is of the torso of Polykleitos' life-size statue of Diadoumenos of around 430 B.C. Polykleitos chose to represent in this statue the moment the athlete binds his head with a fillet (diadem), over which the judges will place the victor's laurel wreath. Though the drawing focuses on the bust of the statue, the shift of the shoulders suggests the fact that the body's weight is taken principally on one leg, a studied improvement by Polyklitos, creating a harmonious contrast of tension and relaxation, all blended in perfection to create the necessary balance.
