Image Index > Athletic Scenes > Two Jumpers Display Their Buttocks


DESCRIPTION
Two long-haired youths jump, accompanied by the typical flute-player who sets the rhythm for jumping competition. Here we see the view from the other side, relative to Side A, prominently displaying the youths' buttocks. The figures are surrounded by numerous kalos-inscriptions, suggesting this view is designed for its erotic potential.
