the torso

The torso has been a classic nude subject in art for centuries... the venus de milo is the example most know.. why do we remember her she has no arms.. her legs ar hidden.. at least she still has her head... why do so many artiost draw the torso... is it a blantant sexual act.. i don't think so... is it just to avoid the difficulties of drawing foreshortened limbs... maybe... is it the potenital beauty in the simple forms and curves... yes I think so... long live the torso in art
