The man curled over his work, the arms which are works in themselves, the hands, the basin, the knee up to the chin, the LIFE in the corner. I love it.

Yeah. This is men being beautiful. Generally I prefer to look at pictures of women, I find women so interesting to look at, but oh man, these men... I'm with mom, I would put this on my wall.
