The Male Body as Art
It's easy to look at ancient Greek and Roman bronze and marble statues of men and understand what their ideal for male physique was. Fast forward to Zeb Atlas (and at least earlier in his career) who looks like he could have posed for some of those ancient figures. Zeb began modeling for fitness and health magazines in the early 1990's, thanks to his powerhouse body getting noticed by the right people at bodybuilding shows. Nude modeling and erotica followed.
