Wink HARDCORE MODELING!: SPORTS IN MOTION: Statue in PARALYMPIC GAMES

This is a project for "Classic Sculpture Tribute" category; as the subject "a Greek statue in Paralympic Archery".

Since most of the ancient statues have been without legs, arms, nose..etc, i have designed a composition by considering that those kind of statues are handicapped sportsmen indeed, so that one of them is in Paralympic Games as a result of his handicap!

For this reason i have searched the game categories in Paralympics and i have found "archery" as a good one to use in my composition with my "not broken, but handicapped" sculpture.

One ancient statue posture in my search is good to use as a reference, however, the bust whether will be Alexander the Great(for my favor) or the Greek God HERMES who created SPORTS in Greek mythology! After my decision between two bust alternatives, the Archer Sculpture will get his name(Alexander III or Hermes).

The reference body that i have found has no arms, but i consider him as a man with one arm to be able to hold the bow while the broken arm has nothing to do with. For this reason, he uses his mouth(as archers handicapped in arm do so) to pull the arrow back. Also, the broken leg of the statue is seen his another handicap, too. His posture and impress on his mouth when he just 'lets the arrow go' is the motion in the sport.

Let's hope to see a good example in Classical Sculpture Tribute adapted to Olympics
Good luck to all!
