The back of the sculpture is just as brilliant as the front view, forming a piece of art in itself. The way the bronze resin has formed to create a strong and powerful scene displayed before us is remarkable and a credit to Payne's incredible talent and eye for detail on the human form.
2012 is the year of the London Olympics and what better way to honour the great Olympian spirit than a sculpture that harps back to the very first games in ancient Greece, centuries ago.
Muscular and strong, this is exactly the way the medium of bronze is conveyed by Payne. The artist pays special attention to the strains in the man's torso and upper arms & showing the time and energy put into crafting this beautiful sculpture.
The lighter finish on this 'bronze' version has an almost granite effect, like a traditional life size sculpture seen in ancient Rome. This is an elegant and graceful piece.
