Fit Bodies: Statues, Athletes and Power Exhibition

This event has finished Took place on: Wednesday, 23rd Jan 2013

What is a fit body? What do we mean by ‘fit’? The idea of fit body has changed over time or has it?

The Ancient Egyptian Pharaohs proved their fitness every 30 years in Sed festival and today such physical prowess is not expected from our political leaders, though arguably we still prefer tall and slim Prime Ministers / Presidents in Anglo world.
