sculpture and painting In sculpture and painting, muscles stand for ENERGY and STRENGTH . They symbolise physical strength and embody HEALTH . And they also bring with them a visual component. You see, muscles don’t simply form an athletic body, they define it and give it an aesthetic expressiveness.
