About this Quote

In this quote, Auguste Rodin, a prominent French carver, assesses the ageless beauty of the human body. He suggests that the naked form of a male is not bound by any specific age or time period, but rather exists permanently. This concept challenges the notion that charm is short lived and subject to the changing trends of society. Rather, Rodin celebrates the enduring appeal of the human kind, which can be valued by individuals of any ages. He indicates that the human body is a source of pleasure and appreciation, transcending cultural and historic boundaries. Through his words, Rodin highlights the universal and ageless nature of human appeal.
