When it comes to ancient sculpture of the nude human form - My question is this - Why-oh-why are all of the men's penises always so small and their bums always so big? Eh? Why??

'Cause if these carved images in stone are the work of a homoerotic mind - Then - Their depiction of the "perfect male" as a fantasy-come-true certainly defies logic.

Anyway - IMO - This glossy book of 200 nude sculptures (both male & female) definitely strikes me as art-photographer, David Finn's fulfilment of his own secret, little dream where it's not about sculpture at all - No - It's all about the nude figure (especially that of the male, small penis, and all).
