- The angle at the apex measures 140 degrees. This is one of the angles
of a nine-sided polygon, and such a figure was presumably drawn out
as part of the planning process.
- Then the sculptor would have drawn out the figure and gradually
cut it back with hammer and chisel, delineating the musculature and
finishing the surface with an increasingly delicate touch.
- Details such as the facial features, the outline foot, the lines
on the hands would then be added. The fist measurement would have
been carved out at a very late stage.
