The ephebe’s weight is on his right leg; the left leg is bent and placed behind him. The left arm was hanging down and the right arm raised to shoulder-height. The musculature, the angle of the pelvis and the folds of flesh on the hips are not very accentuated. The modelling is fluid and the work quite fine.
