The way this pieces looks depicts an early combat scene to me. Naked men are portrait in attacking pose, and they are using swords, axe, knife, bow and arrow to fight each other. The movement in this piece is shown by a rhythm. The men and the weapons make up the rhythm, both are in striking position. I think this describes what happens during a battle. In the foreground, a person is a about to be killed on the left, and a person is already killed in the right. This could’ve also been a sport scene since all the men are jacked. In the center, two men are holding a chain with their left hand, which I think could be the trophy.
