I couldn't decide on whether this belongs in the pop culture (it really ain't) or general pictures forum, so I went with the heavier traffic sub to start and really, it should be promoted. Mods feel free to move, and apologies in advance.

Certainly many masterpieces throughout the history of art. The guy with the python somehow remind me of some scene in "Prometheus" where the engineer fought with that giant alien face hugger creature. I wonder whether R. Scott knew the artwork.
I like "ship ahoi". People told me of sailor stories a lot, really. Though I do think them sail ship times rather would have been hardship on the mates.

I personally like some art of Maurice Heerdink, like this one, on Marne van Opstal:
Image
He did the Marne guy several times, seems to be a ballet dancer.

He is great in anything painting people, but his young men are fabulous . He also did that gladiator guy or spaniard soldier. Looks like he watched the vampire diaries he he, the helmeted dude looks like "Jeremy" a bit.

Better look there:

And the whole gallery on male physique.
If ya want to hang with me, let's go windsurfing!

Some great artwork here. Welcome reminder that nudity and appreciating the male physique does not equate sex or porn.
