Pablo Picasso - Le Jeune Homme (The Young Man), 1958, bronze. 1 of an edition of 2 casts. This bronze figure was inspired by a group of sculptures the artist made in 1956 of bathers. They were made from pieces of scrap timber, nailed together to make a very simple and directimage of the human body. He wanted to represent the primitive, "primal energy" of mankind; He burnt details of the face and spine into the flat surface of the wood.
