See What the Feminine Side of Masculinity Looks Like in These Stunning Nir Arieli Photos!

***
Through the centuries,
MASCULINITY
has been captured in classical art
as shown in this ageless sculpture,
"The Boxer"
 
*
In years past,
we suspect not a lot of men were memorialized
for "The Feminine Side of Masculinity"
in fine art. UNTIL NOW.
*
Take a look at these Nir Arieli photographs
from his collection
"MEN",
and then decide if something has been missing
in classical art all these years.
*
Arieli placed his male subjects in positions,
provocative and otherwise,
and poses typically associated with women
and came up with these images.
*
*

We accept photos will never take precedence over,
or the place of ancient, classical art, no matter the form.
But Areili's work certainly has a place 
at the table.
