Quartet with Gear


These four athletic types are holding what appear to be a medicine ball, a javelin, 
a possible hammer throw, and utterly incongruously, some sort of drum.  
Maybe they needed to keep a rhythm while working out.

  1. The medicine ball might have been for dodge ball. But... Dodge javelin? Or dodge hammer? Lol. Or maybe they danced with these items to the rhythm of a drum?

    1. Now that I think of it, I've seen pictures of these clubs marching as part of their exercise, and drums can be used in that context.

  2. Stunning physiques. I wonder how often they met? The full frontal guy is fairly mature, yet has clearly maintained a magnificent body.

    1. I can't peg his age, but you are certainly right about that body.

  3. While modern interpretive dance can answer many of life's questions, I'm pretty sure that's not what's going on here. With the exception of the drum/tambourine, they look like they're trying to figure out how to switch equipment and for how long.

    1. Perhaps we should consider that Riebicke may have just assembled a random group of props. I get the feeling that the men were carefully selected.
