[ Why I did it ]
The details of the body were very extravagant and well defined. So real was the statue that I was expecting it to get up and go off for a tea break... XD
Wiki has an article on the statue on display - http://anonym.to/?http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Discophoros

[ Photo :: Thought ]
Forgot about the parallax error when shooting close distances... However, most of the statue made it into print. Over-exposure at areas closes to light sources (need to keep this in mind)...
