About this Edition
As far back as Ancient Greek and Egyptian societies, in the times when myths and legends were born, artists have created impossibly high ideals for the beautiful body.
The Ancient Greeks revered naked, athletic, well-defined perfection but knew this was unlikely to exist in the real world. So their artists merged what they considered the ideal features from different bodies — often male and female — into the one form to create the perfect specimen.
