Life Imitates Art

We've all seen a picture of that piece of classical sculpture depicting Roman wrestlers locked in battle. Here's what that work of art looks like with a couple of real flesh-and-blood athletes in place of the marble originals. These shots were taken for a 2008 beefcake calendar featuring French rugby players. You can watch the video coverage of that shoot here.
