Item description: 

This is one of two drawings inspired by a sculpture of a kneeling youth protecting himself from an impending attack. It is the only figure Dine repeated throughout the forty Glyptotek Drawings. He revisited the figure in the drawing Twisted Torso of A Youth (Ilioneus, ca. 300 BC), 1989, also on view in the exhibition.
