The statue of a Greek god hero depicts a naked man with cloth around his next as well around his right arm. The man appears to be happy as he is looking to his left as he can see his future ahead of him. The formal element that is the most important thing is line. The lines from the face are not too thick of lines, but the two lines on his neck that shape a v brings the viewer down his body to see his lower body. The lines help bring this piece together from the abs to the details in the face. The principles of design for this piece are emphasis. The focus of the art piece is the man so the detail in the face and body leave the viewer looking at all of him instead of just part of him.
