The Plight Series includes this pose exclusively. I have this particular pose as bas relief and drawing and in various painted forms. The way he is reaching/pushing in this pose allows very fascinating interpretation. I like the way it looks like a strike towards something, as well as holding something off. In other paintings it can be more ambiguous, but this one has a bit of strain to it.
This is a heroic pose. It appears to be of one defending another. Or is it an attack?
