Id assume the artist is depicting the musculature which develops concurrent with the performance of the running technique depicted. Hence well developed glutes.
...and the ridiculously tiny thin knees and feet no doubt.
that was your last picture posted, In what way are those feet and knees in proportion?
In regards the size of any of the body parts theyre all more or less in proportion to the size of the figure as a whole. Some parts are accentuated.
If I look at the vase above, all it tells me is that you need to push off from your toes - it doesn't suggest anything about how the foot ought to land on the downward step?
Is there a way of running that means you don't push off from the front of your feet?
My impression of the above vase would be that a front foot and toes landing is infered by the posture of the foot portrayed.
Ive never heard of a running technique where the front foot and toes arent the last part of the foot to leave the ground.
chuckling at your thread revivals.
Did no one point out this last vase definitely infers heel striking? The Greek runners must have been getting tired and losing form by now.
Only works though if you have a 12 inch waist
