Sandow looks nonchalant here as a workman applies plaster while he stands in a washtub. 



  1. I love the casting example of capitals behind. He was clearly in an industrial setting. I wonder if they had done any other full body nude casts.

    1. It took about a month of repeated sessions to get this one done, so there was only one actual cast done. There have been copies made, though, which supposedly "refined" some of the technical flaws in the original. Arnold Schwarzenegger had a copy made not long ago, and when originally displayed, the museum added a fig leaf after a few months of prudish late Victorian complaints about the genitals being shown. I just downloaded some pictures of copies that I'll post someday.
