The function of art is to represent ideal beauty.
The classical male torso has been portrayed for centuries in various forms and in different mediums. What captures the beauty aesthetic for me is when the image includes a clearly defined rectus abdominis muscle, that runs vertically on either side of the center of the abdomen.
